Cherry crop 33% bigger than last year in France

French cherries arrive 15 days earlier, with a crop of 33% higher than last year, according to the Ministry of Agriculture.

In the beginning of May the crop estimates reach 51.800 ton. This is an increase of 33% compared to last year and 20% compared to the average of the last 5 years. However the Ministry also points out that the last 2 years crop were among the lowest.

In the three main regions (PACA, Rhône-Alpes, Languedoc-Roussillon), crops are slightly lower, especially in the south where other crops such as vineyards have replaced orchards. However, warm, dry weather conditions have been favourable to production, explaining the expected increase in harvest.

France is the fourth European producer of cherries, behind Poland, Italy and Hungary.
