About frozen fruit and fruit juice.

Frozen fruit: Frozen fruit consumption rose 3% in 2000 to 3.5 pounds per capita. Frozen berry consumption, which makes up the bulk of frozen fruit, remained constant with the previous year. While strawberry and blackberry consumption remained unchanged, frozen raspberry consumption rose 45% to 0.16 pound per person. Consumption also rose for frozen cherries and peaches, but fell for frozen apples and apricots.

Fruit juice: Fruit juice consumption declined 7% in 2000/01 to 8.9 gallons a person. A decline in orange juice consumption, the most popular juice among Americans, brought down overall use. Orange juice consumption declined from the 1999/2000 record mostly because of the reduced quantity of juice produced in 2000/01. Although beginning stocks were at a record-high going into the marketing year, lower production along with lower imports reduced total supply.

Weak market demand also contributed to the lower consumption of 5.25 gallons per person, 10% below the previous season. Because of weak demand, ending stocks are projected to reach a near-record high.

Grapefruit juice consumption increased 3% in 2000/01 from the previous season to 0.68 gallon per person. Although production was down from 1999/2000, it was still higher than the two seasons prior to 1999/2000.

Exports are projected to also be higher for the 2000/01 season. As a result, ending stocks are expected to fall 40%.

Among the other citrus juices, lemon juice consumption rose in 2000/01 and lime juice use remained unchanged.

Consumption of noncitrus juices fell 5% to 2.73 gallons per person in 2000/01. While demand for the major noncitrus juice, apple juice, remained strong, demand dropped for grape, pineapple, and cranberry juices. Prune juice consumption remained unchanged.
