Size matters in Italy
Official projections state that Italy’s almond production will surge by 91% to 42,000 mt in 2023/2024 as compared with last year. Trouble, however, is that there are problems with the size and quality of late varieties such as Penta or Makako almonds as local media report. Assessments are underway to establish replacements with new varieties providing better sizes. Good news is that no problems have been reported with the early Tuono variety, which has fetched good wholesale prices.
