The strong frosts in the Caderechas Valley in April and May, when temperatures fell to -2 and -5º C, affected the flowering stage of the Reineta apples. 50% of the production was lost due to this weather event. Thus, producers will only collect approximately 100,000 kilos, when they normally harvest 200,000 kilos.
The start of the Conference pear season in El Bierzo, Spain, has been marked by the drop in the production volume, which will be between 50 and 80% smaller than average. Pablo Linares, technical director of the Bierzo Guarantee Mark, stressed that the damage caused by the spring frosts will prevent the production volume from reaching the 12.5 million kilos that were harvested last year
