Prunes Global Statistical Review

As reported by the California Prune Board, this year’s growing season, farmers have managed to navigate the challenges of early frosts and multiple heat waves. As harvest grew near, it was apparent the weather had taken some toll on overall tonnage, albeit a good crop with above average sugars and excellent dry ratios. At the time of this writing, this year’s crop was estimated at ~62,000 MT. Supplies continue to be tight as strong demand outpaces production and the global industry finds itself in relative balance compared to a few years ago.
