Euro Variety Agronomic Management (EVAM), a Valencian company, has been granted the exclusive license of the industrial property rights of the US Early Pride mandarin variety in several countries, including the European Union, Morocco, Chile, Peru, and Turkey.

The variety is expected to reach general prices of €0.55 to €0.65/kilo in the field in Spain in 2023.
