2016 CALIFORNIA WALNUT CROP ESTIMATION: 11% INCREASE

Good news comes from the US, with the announcement of an increase around the 11% over the 2015 California walnut crop. The 2016 California Walnut Crop estimation reflects a production of about 670,000 tons, what means a new record until today.

This increase is due to several factors as prosperous weather conditions prevailing within this crop, cold winter and abundant rains during this last winter and spring, mild weather coming the next two weeks, and an increment up to 315,00 bearing acres this year.

In spite of this growth in 2016 crop, the only variety which is expected to increase its production is the Chandler walnut crop, which in 2015 was of nearly 300.000 tons and it is expected to reach to 337.000 tons during 2016.

So, at this moment of the crop, everything points to the fact that the harvesting of the early varieties will began within the next week, as far as the quality of the nuts on the trees looks better than in previous years.

To summarize, we can talk of the best California walnut crop so far. Let’s wait until the next weeks to prove it!!!!
