WAPA reveals that European stocks of apples stood at 1,542,655 T as of May 1, 2022, 17.7% above the 2021 figure. This trend is explained by increases in Red Jonaprince (65.6% since 2021), Gala (+56.1%), Jonagold (+40.8%) and Golden Delicious (+27.7%), although several varieties show a decrease compared to 2021, among which Gloster (- 71.3%) and Granny Smith (-19.8%). On the other hand, pear stocks stood at 155,401 T on May 1, 2022, 2.4% above the 2021 volume.

While Italian varieties dropped to zero, Rocha pears from Portugal increased substantially (+30,678 T above 2021 levels). In the US, apple stocks in May stood at 785,260 T (+8.5% compared to 2021).
