Lemon is one of the most popular and used fruits in the world. Lemon juice is the characteristic ingredient in many pastries, desserts, foods, and beverages. Due to its distinctive astringent flavour, lemon is also used to enhance many poultry, fish, and vegetable dishes worldwide. 

Citric acid may amount to 5 percent or more by weight of the lemon’s juice, which is also rich in vitamin C and contains smaller amounts of the B vitamins, particularly thiamin, riboflavin, and niacin.

Colombia is one of the main producers and exporters of the Tahiti lemon variety. By 2017, colombian lemon was highly sought after in over 21 different countries around the world. 

Santander region produces over 80% of the total Tahiti Lemons that are exported by Colombia. This andean region not only has the ideal environment conditions to grow this fruit, but also has expert farmers who have been implementing for years the best practices to achieve a fruit with a better color, juice, and cortex.

Colombia produces approximately 220,000 tons of various varieties of avocados, what makes it the fourth biggest avocado producer in the world. The country has between 20,000 and 22,000 hectares devoted to avocados, of which 9,000 correspond to Hass, the most popular variety.

The andean region of Santander is very prosperous, especially when it comes to avocados. The altitude and climate conditions of Santander make it optimal for the production of avocados year around.
