Agriculture Minister says mango orchards will be set up across Jamaica

Agriculture Minister Floyd Green has said several mango orchards will be established across the island, commencing in Clarendon next year on a 1,000-acre plot.
 
Mr. Green said the project will be in partnership with private investors to take advantage of the huge market in the United States for Jamaican mangoes.
 
More than 100,000 pounds of Jamaican mangoes have been sold since the start of the year with one importer indicating that 10 times that amount can be sold in the U.S.
