Citrus production in Spain 2018/2019, by type Spain produced over 3.7 million metric tons of oranges during the 2018/2019 season. Tangerines and lemons ranked second and third, with approximately 2.4 million metric tons and 1.1 million metric tons respectively. Grapefruit was Spain’s least produced citrus, with a production of only 81 thousand metric tons. According to the latest records, Spain was Europe’s largest citrus fruit producer.
Spain: an important source of citrus in Europe

Spain mainly exported small varieties of citrus fruit overseas during the 2017/2018 season, with an export volume that amounted to approximately 1.35 million metric tons. Oranges were also largely traded to other countries, with export volume figures reaching over 1.6 million metric tons during that season. Germany was the main destination of Spanish exports of oranges, with the Central European country receiving nearly 420 thousand metric tons of this type of citrus, followed by France with approximately 361 thousand tons.

Domestic consumption and price

The latest consumption results seem to imply that Spaniards are gradually abandoning the habit of eating oranges. The annual per capita consumption of oranges has been dwindling in recent years, reaching its lowest point in 2018 at slightly over 17 kilograms per person, down from a record high of 21.4 kilograms per person in 2013. Prices, however, have experienced an uptrend during the same period, with its lowest point recorded in 2014 at 0.8 euros per kilogram of oranges and increasing to one euro per kilogram in 2018.
