Argentina: Fresh Deciduous Fruit Annual

For 2017/2018, production of all three types of fresh deciduous fruit is forecast to rise to 550,000 MT for apples, 600,000 MT for pears and 45,000 MT for table grapes due to higher yields because of favorable weather conditions. Apple and pear exports are expected to increase to 80,000 and 280,000 MT, respectively and will decrease to 4,000 MT for table grapes. Domestic consumption for the three types of fruit is expected to grow due to the production increase and the lack of competitiveness of local exporters in the international market.
