Canada: Fresh Deciduous Fruit Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   CA2022-0036

Canadian apple production is forecast to grow four percent for market year (MY) 2022/23, as production rebounds in Ontario and Quebec following adverse growing conditions in MY 2021/22. Pear production is forecast to grow on a bumper crop in Ontario, especially of the Bartlett variety. FAS/Ottawa forecasts production of table grapes to decline five percent on lower yields but volumes will remain above the five-year average and quality will be good. Canadian imports of fresh apples are forecast to grow as consumers look to affordable and long storing products amidst high food prices and inflation. Imports of fresh table grapes will grow to offset the smaller domestic production. The United States will remain the main supplier of apples, pears, and table grapes to Canada.
