This season is ideal for consuming oranges, watermelons, and tangerines, because of the abundance of these fruits and their low prices. Meanwhile, it is not advisable to buy bananas or lemons; small production has raised their costs.

Producers expect that the harvest of the three fruits will triple this year, compared to 2016. (I)
