WAPA, the World Apple and Pear Association, released the first apple and pear stock figures of the season. The figures show that in Europe apple stocks increased by 6,8 % compared to 2020 to reach 4,917,891 T, while pear stocks decreased by 27 % to 656,438 T. In the USA, apple stocks as of 1 December 2021 stood at 1,909,045 T (- 2,6 % compared to 2020), while pear stocks reached 224,278 T (21,6 % above 2020).

WAPA, the World Apple and Pear Association, collects every month the stock figures for apples and pears from Europe and the United States. WAPA can reveal that European apple stocks stood at 4,917,891 T as of 1 December 2021, which is 6,8 % above the figure of 2020, which reflects the 11 % increase in the crop. On the other hand, pear stocks stood at 656,438 T on 1 December 2021, 27 % below the volume of 2020, mostly because of the large decrease in Italy. In Europe, the final pear crop is 26 % lower than a year ago. For the USA, apple stocks in December stand at 1,909,045 T, down 2,6 % compared to 2020. This level is reflecting the lower crop in Washington States this year, which stands at just below 3.000,000 T, 4 % less than last year. Pears stocks in the USA stand at 224,278 T, which is 21,6 % above last year.
