BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya: The Department of Agriculture (DA) said the fruit industry in the province is ready for the Association of South East Asian Nation (Asean) integration in 2015. DA provincial chief Celerina Miranda said the quality and availability of fruit products in the province is now improving including those which were not available but were tried by fruit farmers to grow with good results. “[The province] can now boast of various fruit products such as mangosteen, longgan, rambutan among others. They are now available and high in quality compared to that of other provinces,” Miranda said. “In the past, we only have limited fruit products compared in Mindanao but we have already overtaken it because of the improved quality of our products,” she added.
