Camiguin produces more lanzones trees
Camiguin province hit a high record in the propagation of lanzones, ornamental, and other seedlings in April despite the El Nino.
Camiguin’s Provincial Agriculture Office said most of the trees are native lanzones and caballero ornamentals which are used in greening the national highway of the island province.
The PAO said the increased propagation of lanzones trees are good because the soil is moist enough to allow the seeds to grow.
In 2014, the province sold about 810 metric tons of lanzones to Metro Manila, Bacolod, Cebu, Iloilo, and nearby cities and provinces.
Camiguin produces the best and sweetest lanzones in the country.
The province is raising production through cloning, which cuts propagation of planting materials to only four months compared to the traditional way which takes more than a year.
