Imbert E., Gerbaud P., Paqui T., Bright R.. 2008. Fruitrop (English ed.) (152) : p. 28-38.

Litchi: After the interruption in supplies of October, litchi sales resumed in November with the start of the export season in the Indian Ocean countries (Mauritius, South Africa, Madagascar and Réunion). Litchi production in the region returned to more normal levels after the particularly late start to the season in 2006. The price of the litchis shipped by the different countries supplying the European market decreased as supplies gained momentum, falling by nearly 50% between the first deliveries and the end of the month. Mango: The market for Brazilian mango shipped by sea remained fairly stable in November. Deliveries were regular but smaller than those during the same period in 2006. Brazil shipped most of the mango sold on the European market in November. Arrivals increased at the end of the month, weighing on prices, which dipped slightly. The Spanish season continued and finished at the end of the month with 'Keitt' at steadily falling prices. The air mango market was more difficult with deliveries greater than demand sending prices downwards. Pineapple: November was faithful to the rule and was particularly difficult for pineapple sales. Supplies of 'Sweet' from Costa Rica were particularly substantial while demand dwindled throughout the month. The situation was no better on the air market. Demand was very slow and insufficient to handle the quantities available. However, prices did not fall dramatically. Sales on the 'Victoria' market were,as quiet as during the preceding months. In contrast, supply and demand woke up towards the end of the month and the market suppliers became more varied.
