Outlook No. (FTS-32801) 21 pp, September 2007

U.S. imports of fresh fruit and vegetables have increased substantially, particularly since the 1990s. Dominant suppliers are the North American Free Trade Agreement region for fresh vegetables, the Southern Hemisphere countries for off-season fresh fruit, and equatorial countries for bananas. The strong growth in the volume and variety of fresh produce imports has allowed U.S. consumers to eat more fruit and vegetables and enjoy year-round access to various fresh produce.

Keywords: Canada, Chile, Mexico, NAFTA, Southern Hemisphere, fresh fruit imports, fresh vegetable imports, produce consumption, Chinese garlic
