Australian cherry production will increase for the 2022-23 season

According to what Simfruit published, according to the report issued by USDA, Australian cherry production would increase 19,000 metric tons in the 2022-23 season.

The increase would greatly be due to a gradual growth in cherry area that will be starting production with improved varieties, as well as an expected upturn in the low harvest of the 2021-22 season, due to non-seasonal wet conditions, around harvest time.

During the current season, the winter period in all the main cherry producing areas has had good rainfall and average or lower temperatures, which has provided enough cold hours to promote a strong expected rotation.

Most of the export destinations for Australian-grown cherries are in Asia. This makes air transportation more cost-effective compared to long-haul destinations.

It’s worth mentioning that in the last years, destinations have been diversified towards Hong Kong and Vietnam, moving away from China. A combination of 55% to 60% of total Australian exports in the last years.
