Stone Fruit: World Markets and Trade

2022/23 world cherry production forecast up over 220,000 tons to 4.7 million

Turkey is the world’s third largest producer of peaches and nectarines and surpassed the European Union in 2021/22 to become the world’s leading exporter. Peaches and nectarines are primarily grown in the coastal provinces of Bursa, Canakkale, Izmir, and Mersin, with peaches accounting for nearly 80 percent of production.  Between 2001/02 and 2011/12, output was fairly stable, averaging 500,000 metric tons (tons).  Production jumped to over 600,000 for the first time in 2012/13 and has not declined since 2015/16.

Expanding output has been driven in large part by the rising popularity of nectarines among both domestic and foreign market consumers.  Peach acreage has contracted slightly the last 10 years but has been offset by increasing nectarine acreage, keeping the total combined planted area nearly unchanged. Peach and nectarine growers have also been improving orchards, replacing older varieties with newer high‐yield varieties, resulting in yield rising nearly 30 percent over the last decade.
