Imports Contribute to Year-Round Fresh Fruit Availability

This report analyzes the monthly shipment patterns of both aggregated fresh fruits and five major imported fresh fruits-grapes, avocados, oranges, strawberries, and apples. The seasonal relationships between imports and domestic products are found to be complementary. Errata: On January 9, 2014, Table 2 on page 15 was revised to correct errors in the labeling of rows in the table. The row label for "Peaches & nectarines" was changed to "Avocados," the row label for "Avocados" was changed to "Peaches & nectarines," the row labels for "Pears," "Grapefruit," and "Lemons" was changed to "Lemons," "Pears," and "Grapefruit," and the row labels for "Papayas" and "Blueberries" was changed to "Blueberries" and "Papayas." Additionally, the label heading for the fourth column was changed from "2001-12" to "2010-12."
