The Murcia stone fruit season is already underway

The extra-early stone fruit season has already begun in the Murcia Region, where growers have started harvesting the first varieties of peaches, nectarines and apricots. A production of approximately 300,000 tons is expected, with optimal quality forecasted due to the absence of significant temperature fluctuations.

The first fruits of the season are being well received in the market, and it is estimated that between 60,000 and 75,000 tons of extra-early fruit will be placed on the market, which will be harvested until next May 20, when the mid-season campaign of peach, flat peach, nectarine and apricot will begin. The mid-season campaign runs until the end of July, followed by the late production in August.

In terms of exports, the Region of Murcia is a key player, with 132,000 tons of stone fruit exported in 2023. This figure reflects the importance of the region in the European market, positioning it as one of the main peach and nectarine exporting provinces, as well as the leading apricot exporting region in Spain.
