Dominican Republic leader in organic exports

 DR is major organic exporter

The DR continues to consolidate its position as a leading producer and exporter of organic farm products. Organic exports include coffee, cacao, mango, oriental vegetables, nursery vegetables, lime, orange and zapodilla, says a report in Diario Libre today. The Center for Export and Investment forecasts organic produce exports to be US$200 million, this year up from U$175 million in 2008.

For those who are wondering, zapodilla is a small fruit, botanically Pouteria sapota, locally known as sapote and also "The Marmalade Tree", which is very sweet and very popular in milkshakes or as a preserved fruit. 

One of the joys of living in the Dominican Republic is trying new tropical fruits and vegetables, especially those you can find growing in the countryside.
