South Korea: Citrus Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Korea’s total citrus production for Marketing Year (MY) 2020/21 (October – September) is projected to reach 660,000 metric tons (MT). This 4.5 percent increase over MY 2019/20 volume is attributed to a larger open- field “Unshu” orange crop forecasted in the northern Jeju island growing region. Korea’s 2020/21 citrus consumption is projected to increase 2.9 percent to 567,000 MT due to increased marketing of quality citrus, and a 15 to 20 percent drop in availability of competing domestic fruit. Similar to last year's trade, Korean fresh orange imports (primarily sourced from the United States) are forecast at 115,000 MT for MY 2020/21.
