Tradescope visits South Africa's produce-packed Western Cape

Ted Horton recently went on a tour around Cape Town and the Western Cape province of South Africa where he was blown away by the variety and quantity of agricultural produce.

Simonsberg Mountains, Western Cape, South Africa

It's as the Brand South Africa website says: The sheltered valleys between mountains are ideal for the cultivation of export-grade fruit such as apples, table grapes, olives, peaches and oranges. A variety of vegetables is cultivated in the eastern part of the Western Cape, while the wheat-growing Swartland and Overberg districts are the country’s breadbasket.

The inland Karoo region and the Overberg district around Bredasdorp produce wool and mutton, as well as pedigree Merino breeding stock. Other animal products include broiler chickens, eggs, dairy products, beef and pork.
