Tunis/Tunisia — Fruit exports jumped 65.76% in value from January 1 to May 23, 2018, the Ministry of Agriculture, Water Resources and Fisheries announced on Monday.

The quantities of fruit exported increased by 76.43% to 5014.2 tonnes for a value of 19.528 million dinars (MD), against 11,781 million dinars during the past season.

During this season, Tunisia exported 6,636 MD of peaches, 2,667.8 MD of melons and 2,875.4 MD of apricots.

Similarly, our fruit exports to the Italian market have recorded a considerable increase of 275.5% in quantities and 300% in value.
