Overview

This page provides information on:  

The U.S. fruit and tree nuts industry consists of a wide array of crops and products generating, on average, over $25 billion in farm cash receipts annually. Produced on less than 2 percent of U.S. agricultural cropland, farm cash receipts from this sector account for about 7 percent of the total receipts for all agricultural commodities and around 13 percent for all crops. Foreign markets serve as outlets for less than 20 percent of overall U.S. fruit and tree nuts supplies, while nearly half of the available supplies for domestic consumption come from imports. ERS monitors fruit and tree nuts markets and provides the following:
