Cherry harvest falls in Germany

Cherry harvest falls in Germany

According to figures provided by the German Federal Statistical Office (Destatis), and as Cherry Times reported, the cherry harvest fell by 15.5% compared to 2022, with a total harvest of 40,200 tons.

This is approximately 8,500 tons less than in the previous season, mainly, according to the report, due to the early flowering and late frosts that occurred in the area, which, as has happened in other parts of the world, had a direct impact on the industry, meaning a decrease even greater than expected, which in mid-June was projected at around 45,000 tons. On the other hand, rains, climatic effects and pests also caused losses in yield, contributing to the unfavorable scenario.

Sweet Cherries

Regarding sweet cherries specifically, the final numbers reflected a volume of 15.9% less, with a harvest of 6,100 tons. On the other hand, the federal state of Baden-Württemberg continued to be the most important state in the harvest of these varieties, with 2,600 hectares, which represents 42% of the fruit harvested.
