China: Fresh Deciduous Fruit Annual

Post forecasts China’s apple production at 44.5 million metric tons (MMT) in MY 2017/18, up a mere 1 percent from the previous year. Pear production is expected to increase by nearly 2 percent to 19 MMT and grape production is forecast to increase by 4 percent to 11.2 MMT. China’s apple and grape imports will increase given strong demand for high quality fruit and the availability of counter-seasonal supplies.
