A Zest For Citrus

Our influence extends even further, representing 7% of the nation’s soft citrus exports. With a prized collection of citrus varieties, including Nadorcott, Orri, Tango, Cambria, Autumn Gold, seedless lemons, various clementines, satsumas and valencias, Suiderland Plase stands tall as a formidable contender in the industry. Bolstered by ongoing developments, our citrus production is poised for a notable expansion in the near future.
