THE first harvest of Sunraysia’s juicy and seedless mandarin variety Delite has hit supermarket shelves across Australia.

General manager of operations at Nut­rano’s Sunwest farm at Red Cliffs, Tania Chapman, said the season was “absolutely sensational” for Delite, as the company continued to meet increased consumer demand for “premium” seedless fruit.

“On our Sunwest farm we have a permanent netting structure, so if you have a seeded lemon tree and you are trying to grow seedless fruit (next to it) they will cross-pollinate, whether it be by bees or whether it be by wind,” she said.
