Americans consume about 12 million tons of fruits annually, with 30% of them imported, he added.

The exported pomelo must come from the 36 growing areas in Vietnam that have been registered with U.S. authorities.

They span 752 hectares, or 0.71% of Vietnam’s total pomelo growing area.

Many measures must be strictly taken to ensure the fruits are clean and healthy.

Ben Tre Province Chairman Tran Ngoc Tam said that of the seven Vietnamese fruits that are exported to the U.S., the province has three: pomelo, longan and rambutan.

Other fruits that have been approved for official U.S. exports are mango, dragon fruit, star apple and lychee.
