Argentina: Fresh Deciduous Fruit Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   AR2022-0024

For Marketing Year (MY) 2022/23, Post forecasts fresh deciduous fruit production to rebound to 535,000 MT for apples and 700,000 MT for pears due to favorable weather conditions. Exports are expected to increase to 75,000 MT for apples and 325,000 MT for pears as a result of larger production and reduced fruit supply in Northern Hemisphere fruit producing countries. Post anticipates a boost in apple and pear domestic consumption in-line with the production increase.
