Calamansi

  • The January to March 2018 production of calamansi was at 14.86 thousand metric tons which was 0.9 percent lower than last year’s level of 14.99 thousand metric tons. This decline was caused by:
    • the occurrence of occasional to frequent rains and citrus fruit flies during flowering stage in Central Luzon (Nueva Ecija) and MIMAROPA (Oriental Mindoro).
  • The top calamansi producers during the period were CALABARZON with 18.2 percent; MIMAROPA, 16.3 percent; and Central Luzon, 12.8 percent (Figure 5).
