Worldwide demand for fresh grape exports from California continues to be high.

During the 2015-2016 season, California´s table grape growers harvested their third largest crop ever, sending 110.5 million boxes of grapes to more than 55 countries around the world, and setting a new record for crop value at US 1.83 billion.

Asia is the biggest export region for California, and geographically that makes a lot of sense because is just across the Pacific Ocean. Without Canada, which is a very large market, Asia is just under 56% of the total, so it is quite significant.

The California table grape season is underway once more, making high quality grapes in three colours and a wide array of varieties (seeded and seedless) available to consumers around the world.

Indeed, exports accounted for more than a third – 34.7% – of the 2015-16 production, with a total of 37.9 million 19-pound boxes of California grapes valued at $737.8 million shipped to more than 60 export markets, USDA export data shows.
