A heat wave in late 2009 had reduced the volume of fruit on trees, which increased the size of the remaining fruit and created softness issues. AgriExchange divisional manager Richie Roberts confirmed the US mar- ket had been flooded with large fruit that had failed to meet specifications. ''The high exchange rate, presence of Chile in the market, large fruit and softness issues combined to make the US market difficult,'' Mr Roberts said. Some shipments have been donated to charity. Riverina Citrus export committee member and grower Sue Brighenti said multiple packers had ''let down'' Australia's export program to the US by sending inferior produce.
