In marketing year (MY) 2019/20, Bulgaria’s total fresh deciduous fruit crop declined by seven percent. Apple production decreased by 13 percent from MY 2018/19, as unfavorable weather conditions reduced yields. In contrast, pear production reached record levels due to higher area harvested and yields. Table grape production was stable. While strong demand drove imports during the first half of MY 2019/20, COVID-19 response measures led to lower demand and reduced imports after March. Fresh consumption decreased, while demand for shelf-stable processed products led to record-high levels of apple and pear processing. Post expects MY 2020/21 fresh consumption will rebound as COVID-19 wanes in 2021.
