“It’s a little smaller there. We think they had a bigger drought concern than South Africa had. It’s a good crop but they’re just smaller.”

Chile sends 62% of its orange exports to the U.S.

Chilean lemon exports are expected to fall sharply, down 19% to 36,962 tons. It was the commodity hurt most by dry weather.

“They also have a strong domestic market for lemons right now,” Huckabay said.

“We probably won’t see large amounts coming into the U.S.”

“Lemons are a short crop out of Chile,” Mixon said.

“A lot that would have gone import has gone domestic. It might have to do with other production areas globally.”

The U.S. typically gets 37% of Chile’s lemon exports.

He comprado una bolsa de 4-lb de naranjas chilenas en tienda un Trader Joe en Orland Park, Illinois, EE. Son TERRIBLE. Una piel gruesa sobre un minúsculo, se secó, mal sabor del centro. La etiqueta del cuello decía "llena 14/08/2013. Yo no sé cuándo entonces fueron elegido o cuánto se almacenaban antes del envío. El código de producto es 0026 2767.
