Citrus is an important fruit crop in Kenya and ranks fourth after bananas, pineapples and mangoes.[MOA,2007].About 10000 hectares are planted with sweet orange, Lemons, and Grapefruits that produce a total of 87000 metric tons valued at Ksh 1.7 billion[MOA,2008].
The highest production is in the Coast ,Eastern, and Rift valley provinces. However, production does not met the local demand [MOA, 2003] necessitating importation of large qualities of citrus fruits and products. There is therefore scope for improving the production and quality of local Citrus.
