The figure from the United Nations includes lemons, tangerines and grapefruits, but it is oranges that take the biggest wedge of the market.

2.9 million tonnes were produced in 2013, with a one million tonne export segment. Saudi Arabia, The United Arab Emirates and The Netherlands all compete for the title of largest export market, but Russia pips them to the post.

Popular varieties include Navel, Blood and Valencia, with the fruit accounting for 68% of the country's total citrus output between 2011 and 2013.
