The harvest of Fuji apples at Isnaet, China has come finished for the season, the apples are on the market and in storage. Peter Zhu from the company said there are some differences compared to last season.

"Sizes are larger this year, especially in the Yantai growing region. Yields are down 20% but prices are 40%. The quality of the Fuji apples is much better though, the colour is very good, with a much redder apple being produced, this due to a later harvest than last year."

More apples are in storage as growers expect a higher price in the first half of 2015. Demand for apples fell in October and not expected to be picked for a few months.

Zhu said that due to the lower yields growers will still turn a profit
