Germany: Overview on the German Cherry Sector - 2023

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   GM2023-0011

Germany is the third-largest importer of cherries in the world after China/Hong Kong and Russia. From 2010 to 2022, 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 MY2023/24 (April/March) is estimated at 45,420 MT. This is a 6.7 percent decrease compared to the preceding year and 3.5 percent below the ten-year (2013-2022) average. The decrease is largely a result of unfavorable weather conditions during pollination. Opportunities for U.S. sweet cherries are best in August/September, after the German domestic growing season.
