FRESH FRUITS AND VEGETABLES: SOME CHARACTERISTICS OF THE U.S. MARKET FOR NINE SELECTED IMPORTS, 1975-85

The Caribbean Basin Economic Recovery Act of August 5, 1983, created a need for market information for nontraditional agricultural products, as 27 Caribbean and Central American countries were offered duty-free access to U.S. markets for a minimum of 12 years. This report provides a 10-year annual and monthly database, beginning with 1975 for U.S. production, consumption, imports, and prices for nine fresh fruits and vegetables: avocados, cantaloups, honeydews, limes, mangoes, broccoli, cauliflower, peppers, and cucumbers. It also determines annual and seasonal patterns of quantity and price trends from the data assembled for the nine commodities.
