Southern hemisphere pears

This article was originally published in Foodnews

Exports of pears from the southern hemisphere are forecast to grow by 7.7% in 2011, compared with 2010. Chilean consultancy iQonsulting estimates that exports will total 772 000 tonnes, slightly less than the 2009 figure of 779 714 tonnes, writes Diane Farquhar. Argentina, Chile and South Africa are set to increase their pear production in 2010. South Africa's exports are forecast to rise by 2.5% to 187 000 tonnes, Argentina's by 7.9% to 453 000 tonnes, and Chile's by 15% to 132 000 tonnes. Chile may not achieve this growth, however, because weather conditions have not been ideal for fruit development and the harvest may be slightly reduced.
