The cultivation of Pomegramate cv. Wonderful in Chile

Franck N.

The pomegranate plantations in Chile have increased exponentially in the last decade taking fresh pomegranate exports from 200 t/year in 2007 to 2500 t/year in 2010. Practically 100% of the pomegranate production in Chile was based on the Wonderful variety which fulfils the requirements of intense red colour of the skin and the flesh inside demanded by the destination markets supplied by Chile: Europe and Russia. This flourishing industry in Chile has faced several challenges related to appropriate planting areas, growing and post-harvest techniques for fruit destined for export and industrialisation and to the large proportion of fruit unsuitable for export. The presentation will detail these challenges as well as the technical advances in cv. Wonderful growing that have been made thanks to the collaboration between producers, exporters and research centres in Chile.
