Fruit

Western Australia’s fruit growing industries extend from Kununurra in the far north to Albany on the cool south coast.

The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development works closely with industry to improve efficiency and increase returns from the farm gate to export markets.

Strawberries are the highest value export, supplying around two-thirds of the Australian total. Key markets in the last year were Singapore and New Zealand followed by Thailand, Hong Kong, Malaysia and the United Arab Emirates.

Steady growth is occurring in the avocado, citrus and mango industries due to additional plantings and efficient production.
