Exports And Imports
Jamaica's export crops are: sugar, bananas, coffee, citrus, cocoa, coconut, pimento (allspice) and root crops. They also export flowers and folia plants. Much has also been achieved in fresh water fishing and shrimp farming, the growing of mushrooms, strawberries and oyster farming. Numerous tropical tubers, vegetables, flowers and exotic are cultivated in accordance with tradition. Blue Mountain Coffee is the most priced and expensive in the world and is used chiefly for blending with less aromatic beans worldwide. It is grown only in a small area on the Blue Mountains, one of Jamaica's greatest physical features. Jamaica also produces excellent mid-mountain and lowland coffee.
Jamaica is a major producer of bauxite and alumina, from which aluminium is made.
