Pomegranate03_edit[1]aPOMEGRANATES are growing in their droves in Spain… but they may be difficult to offload.

A warm summer combined with a spattering of showers in the spring has given Spain’s pomegranate growers reason to rejoice with this harvest 30% up on last year.

However, there may be an issue with offloading the stock. The Russian market which usually absorbs 30% of pomegranates produced in Spain will receive far fewer this year due to EU imposed sanctions.
