Meanwhile, Chilean growers continue to look at technologies that help prevent seeds from showing up in clementines and mandarins, said Tom Tjerandsen, managing director of North America for the Chilean Fresh Fruit Association, Sonoma, Calif.

The seed problem, which has to do with pollen drift, has vexed California growers, as well, he said.

The fruit, similar to those grown in California, are “a true seedless clementine,” he said.
