During 1978-89, the United States exported more fresh fruit than had been reported by the Bureau of the Census. Import data made available by Statistics Canada revealed that some shipments of fresh fruit from the United States to Canada had not been counted by the Bureau. Using the Canadian data raised total U.S. fruit exports and lowered consumption. The author determined that U.S. consumption of citrus fruits was 5 percent lower and consumption of noncitrus fruits was 1 percent lower than previously estimated. Since 1990, the Bureau of the Census has used Canadian import data as a measure of U.S. exports to Canada. This bulletin reports the revised U.S. exports and per capita consumption for 13 flesh fruits: grapefruit, lemons, limes, oranges, tangerines, apples, avocados, sweet cherries, grapes, peaches and nectarines, pears, prunes and plums, and strawberries. The report also includes 40-year trends for fresh fruit consumption.
