In December 2019, Peru exported 6.2 tons of physalis or aguaymanto, which represents a significant increase compared to the 55 kilos that were shipped abroad in 2018, according to Fresh Fruit.
When considering this scenario, it is not surprising that total shipments of the fruit rose 11,175% in volume last year compared to the previous one. The main destinations of Peruvian physalis were South Korea, with a 64% share, and the Netherlands, with 32%.
The source highlights that in the month of December last year, 4 shippers exported this fruit to 6 different countries. The main exporting companies were Glint, with a 65% stake, and Peruvian Nature S&S with a 35%.
