WAPA releases the first apple and pear stock figures of 2022

WAPA, the World Apple and Pear Association, released today the first apple and pear stock figures
of 2022. The figures show that in Europe apple stocks increased by 5.1% compared to 2021 to reach
4,308,683 T, while pear stocks decreased by 18.2% to 661,587 T. In the USA, apple stocks as of 1
January 2022 stood at 1,674,042 T (-2.7% compared to 2021), while pear stocks reached 190,192 T
(24.8% above 2021). WAPA will continue to publish the monthly stock figures on its website and
social media channels for the rest of the season.
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
4,308,683 T as of 1 January 2022, which is 5.1% above the figure of 2021. This increase was mainly
driven by Golden Delicious (up 19.5% from 2021), Jonagold (+15.8%), and Gala (+15.7%), which
compensated for the decrease in several varieties, most notably Granny Smith (-12.5%) and Cripps
Pink (-11%). On the other hand, pear stocks stood at 661,587 on 1 January 2022, 18.2% below the
volume of 2021, mostly because of the large decrease in Italy.
In the USA, apple stocks in January stood at 1,674,042 T, down 2.7% compared to 2021. This is due to
a decrease among the largest varieties, such as Fuji (-19.6%), Honeycrisp (-15.5%), Red Delicious (-
12.5%), and Gala (-8.3%), and despite significant increases for Cosmic Crisp (+147%) and Pink Lady
(+17.4%). Pears stocks in the USA stood at 190,192 T, which is 24.8% above last year.
WAPA will continue to release the stock levels for the rest of the season. The figures from the 1st of
February 2022 will be made public on the WAPA website at the beginning of March.
