As drought weighed on the apple harvest in Hungary this year, orchards produced more peaches, apricots and pears, said last week.

Citing data from growers association FruitVeb, noted that the apple harvest fell to around 300,000 tonnes from 520,000 in 2021.

Harvests of peaches and apricots “well exceeded” previous years, with orchards producing around 25,000 tonnes of apricots. Last year’s apricot harvest was just under 12,000 tonnes, according to data from the Central Statistical Office (KSH).

Agroinform said the pear harvest increased to 17,000 tonnes from 16,000 tonnes a year earlier, and the sweet cherry harvest was around 10,000 tonnes. According to data from KSH, just under 9,000 tonnes of sweet cherries were harvested in Hungary in 2021.

The website wrote that the sour cherry harvest was around 60,000 tonnes, similar to previous years, but only part of the harvest met the 18mm size requirement for industrial processing.
