Murcott citrus

LGS Specialty Sales has announced the start of its Moroccan W Murcotts season with a 'strong supply' of winter mandarins available now through to April 2022.

The company, a leading importer of citrus, avocados and grapes, has been supplying Mandarins from Morocco to the US for over 15 years between the months of January and April, and from the Southern Hemisphere in the summer until fall.

These next few months will serve as the peak of its imported window with 'good tasting and quality fruit', LGS said.

“Mandarins are known for their overall excellent quality and taste, and this season’s fruit is nothing short of that,' said Luke Sears, president and founder of LGS Specialty Sales.

'During this time of year, we see high consumption among shoppers looking for ways to incorporate more vitamin C and citrus into their lifestyle,' he said. “As the largest importer of mandarins in the US out of Morocco, supplying W Murcotts has allowed us to keep up with this ever-growing demand for easy-peelers.”

LGS explained that throughout each season, its agronomists visit each field to monitor and observe the growing practices to ensure the fields and products are of the highest quality.

In the off-season, the agronomists and consultants recommend any changes that can be made to constantly improve product taste and quality.
