MARKET INFO of Bergamot Oil BF

Latest Market Info: Apr, 2022

It’s a little early to have a clear forecast on the forthcoming citrus season out of Italy, though the general consensus seems to be that crop volumes will be reduced as compared to last year. This is mainly due to the unfavorable climate conditions that occurred during the early post-flowering stage of bergamot, with temperatures in the region of Syracuse hitting nearly 120 F (48.8 C). These temperatures caused a significant loss of fruit, meaning that the harvest is expected to be delayed by at least 2-3 weeks.
