Massive hail storm decimates Spain’s fruit crop – Nectarines, peaches, etc

Takes place just before the harvest was set to begin.

A massive hail storm on Tuesday evening in Lleida and Huesca hit the stone fruit growing areas of Torres de Segre, Soses, Alcarras, Aitona, Binaced, Binefar, Ximenells, Alcolea de Cinca, Bellver de Cinca and Fraga.

In total, an approximately 12,000 hectare swath of hail damage decimated Spain’s stone fruit crop (nectarines, peaches, etc.):
