Star Ruby Grapefruit

The Star Ruby Grapefruit is a popular cultivar in a growing niche segment within an established grapefruit market. Identified by its red-blushed flesh and sweet taste, the variety is marketed and exported to markets looking for more specialised fresh produce.

Mandarins are one of the cultivars planted for exporting at Selebi Phikwe Citrus in Botswana.

Premium Mandarins

The mandarin is the fastest-growing citrus category internationally and a favourite amongst households as a convenient snack for the whole family. Mandarins are the overarching category that Tangerines, Clementines, and Satsumas fall into. They are generally smaller and sweeter than oranges, a little flatter in shape, and have a thinner, looser skin that makes them easier to peel.

Eureka Lemons

A popular variety of lemon on the market, the seedless lemon, represents a growing niche segment that is rapidly expanding. Although the lemon market is well established, the seedless variety is gaining popularity in markets around the world thanks to its potential for year-round production.
