Cherry imports from the U.S. are expected to fall because of reduced supplies and COVID related logistical issues. China’s peach and nectarine production is forecast to increase to 16.8 MMT in MY 2022/23 on favorable growing conditions. Exports are expected to regain lost ground from MY 2021/22 with the resumption of market access to Russia.
