Imbert E., Gerbaud P., Paqui T., Bright R.. 2007. Fruitrop (English ed.) (151) : p. 20-30.

Litchi: Litchi supplies were particularly small and almost nonexistent. Indeed, October is a month when the fruit is absent from the European markets. It marks the supply break between the end of the Israeli and Spanish export seasons and the start of the sales of Indian Ocean litchi. No litchi was to be found on European markets except for a few remaining batches from Spain. Mango: he mango market remained balanced in October, with prices weakening in the second half of the month. Supplies changed gradually with a decrease in arrivals from Senegal and Israel as their seasons came to a close. Meanwhile, shipments from Brazil increased, making up for the decrease in fruits from the preceding suppliers. Supplies were completed by shipments from Spain; this increased in volume in the first half of the month and then decreased. Availability of 'Kent' was small and so this sold at better prices than the other varieties. Pineapple: October started well with fairly fluid sales but finished with difficulty on an over-supplied market with lagging demand and batches of uneven quality, especially as regards 'Sweet'. The air pineapple market was somewhat irregular as supply problems were added to concerns about fruit quality. The 'Victoria' market was much the same as in September. Demand remained extremely dull and the market lacked dynamism.
