FRUITY FEARS: Big freeze hits stone fruit

SPAIN is to become the first EU country to export stone fruits to China.

The Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment and the Chinese administration signed a protocol that will allow EU countries to export peaches, nectarines, prunes and other stone fruits to the vast and growing east Asian market, and Spain will be the first.

Chinese inspectors will visit next month to inspect farms and factories, with exports by air expected to begin this year.
