The heavy snow that fell in April in China’s major peach growing provinces has triggered a 500,000 ton drop in overall stonefruit production to 14.5 million tons, according to USDA. Accordingly, exports are down by around 33%, partly due to the ongoing Russian ban on Chinese fruit imports.

Turkey’s peach and nectarine crop is forecast to grow 5% to 870,000 tons in the 2020/21 campaign, according to Turkish Statistics Institute (TurkSTAT). Exports are increasing due to the large production volumes and the strong demand from the Russian and EU markets. Turkey continues to be among the top ten exporters in the world for peaches and nectarines. Farmers in major growing areas are generally satisfied with the yields and quality of their crop thanks to favourable weather conditions during the blooming and harvest period.
