A Gweru-based farmer claims to have secured a lucrative market for horticultural products in Germany. Mr Tatenda Karimazondo recently attended the Fruit Logistica in Berlin where he says he received orders of $800 000 of passion fruit and peas to be delivered in July this year.

Mr Karimazondo said he has put 20 hectares under peas and another 20 hectares under granadilla.

"I am hoping to export this coming season and I am focused primarily on peas and passion fruit. I sealed some deals when I attended the Berlin Fruit Logistica," he said.

'We have put about 20 hectares of peas and if we manage to get the prices that we negotiated, if we manage issues of quality then we are looking at $400,000 and we also have passion fruit specifically granadilla and if it works out then we are talking of another $400,000," added Mr Karimazondo.
