Moldova 2021: Larger plum harvest and reduced exports

According to a preliminary assessment of the organizations of fruit growers in Moldova, the plum harvest in the country amounted to around 105-125,000 tons this year (in 2020 – about 65,000 tons, in 2019 – 109,000 tons, in 2018 – 133,000 tons). Despite an almost twofold increase in the production compared to last year’s level, plum exports are unlikely to reach the level of 2020 this year.

As of early December 2021, around 52,000 tons of plums of the new harvest were exported from the country. According to recent estimates, less than 1,000 tons of plums remain in the cold storage facilities of growers and traders, which will be sold on the domestic market. The export of plums of the 2020 harvest amounted to about 56,000 tons.
