Germany: Overview on the German Cherry Sector 2022

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   GM2022-0028

Germany is the third-largest importer of cherries in the world after China/Hong Kong and Russia. From 2010 to 2021, between 52 and 77 percent of the cherries consumed in Germany were imported, with the majority of imports originating in other EU member states. The largest non-EU cherry suppliers are Turkey for sweet cherries and Serbia for sour cherries. German cherry production for MY 2022/23 is estimated at 54,700 MT. This is a 43-percent increase compared to the preceding year and 19 percent above the ten-year (2012-2021) average. The increase is largely a rebound from the unusually low production of 2021. Opportunities for U.S. sweet cherries are best in August/September, after the German domestic growing season.
