South Korea: Citrus Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   KS2022-0029

Reduced open field "Unshu" mandarin harvest in the southern part of Jeju Island will drive Korea's total citrus production down slightly in 2022/23. Overall fruit quality is expected to be above average following reduced rainfall during the growing period, with higher Brix and lower sourness levels. Korea's fresh orange imports in 2022/23 are projected to decline by 3.8 percent (following a 29 percent drop in 2021/22) due to falling consumer fruit demand and unfavorable currency exchange rates.
