Dear valued customer,
The department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Services has issued a final rule that, effective August, 9th, they will allow the importation of several varieties of fresh citrus fruit, as well as citrus hybrids and the citrus-related genus Fortunella, from Uruguay into the continental United States. Included are sweet oranges, lemons, four species of mandarins, and two types of kumquats.
We will send out a notification once the Import Regulations are posted on the APHIS web site, FAVIR.
Thank you for your continued support.
