São Paulo – Production of stone fruits is expected to rise in Tunisia . The Arab country is estimated to produce 295,000 tonnes in 2022, against 285,000 tonnes the previous year, up 3.5%. The increase is due to favorable climate conditions, according to data from the Interprofessional Fruit Grouping (GIFruits) received by Tunisia's state news agency TAP.

Production of peaches and nectarines is estimated at 156,000 tonnes this season, compared to 152,000 tonnes last season. Apricots production will reach 37,400 tonnes while that of plums will amount to 20,100 tonnes, up 8.7% compared to last year. As for almonds , their production will reach 69.5 thousand tons, against 65.7 thousand tons last year, a year-on-year increase of 5.8%.

According to the GIFruits, production of cherries and loquats is expected to reach 9,000 tonnes each compared to 7,900 tonnes last year for cherries.

To improve the positioning and visibility of Tunisian products on the Libyan market, which is the leading export market for Tunisian fruits, the GIFruits, in coordination with the country's Export Promotion Center (CEPEX), aims to take part in the Tripoli International Fair, scheduled for May 9 to 15.
