The company also will have a small navel orange deal.

Minneolas are the firm’s biggest item and should start from Peru in mid-July and continue until early September for a six- to nine-week program.

Peruvian clementines and w. murcotts are top-quality products, though a newer program that growers are trying to perfect, he said. Last year they came off with no problems, he said.

Peruvian w. murcotts can fill in the gap between South African and Chilean clementines and w. murcotts, he said.

“All three complement each other,” Marier said.

Peruvian minneolas should be excellent and can be interchanged with product from South Africa and Chile, he said.

Peruvian growers are known for their minneolas, said Mayda Sotomayor-Kirk, chief executive officer for Seald Sweet International, Vero Beach, Fla.

Seald Sweet will offer them from mid-July until the end of August.
