Bumper pip fruit harvest expected in China

Mon 20/11/2023 by Richard Wilkinson

China’s pip fruit harvest is expected to rise this year. According to USDA estimates, China’s production of apples, pears, and table grapes will increase to 45 million tons, 19.6 million tons and 13.5 million tons, respectively, in 2023/24. Apple imports will likely decline by 20 percent due to reduced supplies and higher prices in major exporting countries. Table grape imports will further decrease by 30 percent, substituted by improved production volumes and desirable domestic varieties. Despite China’s limited import volume, pear imports will continue to increase by 20 percent on rising demand.
