French market, December 2001 : Indicators. Banana, avocado, orange, grapefruit, easy peelers

Imbert E.. 2002. Fruitrop (English ed.) (87) : p. 12-17.

Banana: December was the only month out of step in a year, 2001, that was satisfactory overall. The monthly average price was well down on the preceding seasons in spite of similar stock availability in France and active export flow to Germany. Indeed, local demand was particularly sluggish. Avocado: The market recovered rapidly after the extremely difficult situation in November and in spite of distinctly more sluggish demand than in previous seasons. Supplies from the main origins-especially Israel-were limited. Orange: The overall balance is satisfactory as both releases on to the market and prices increased considerably in spite of demand turned mainly towards easy peelers. Grapefruit: The grapefruit market weathered the traditional December depression without a marked adjustment in prices, which remained firm. Indeed, pressure from supply was particularly modest in 2001. Easy peelers: Overall performance was comparatively satisfactory, with quantities released and prices slightly up on the average for the past three seasons. Serious quality problems nonetheless made the results very different from one varietal group to another and from one origin to another.
