Russia is quite a successful fruit-producing country. During its warm season, Russia grows sweet cherries, strawberries, apples, pears, plums, apricots, grapes, melons, and peaches. Despite that, the amount of fruit grown does not meet domestic demand, and Russians often end up importing more.
Raspberries are just one of the many crops Russia grows, and in 2020 alone, Science Agriculture reports that the country produced 182,000 tons of the fruit. Mexico followed behind Russia by growing 146,350 tons, and Poland came in third with 121,700 tons. In 2019, Russia accounted for 21.2 % of global raspberry production and ended up exporting 519 tons of raspberries, blackberries, and mulberries to other countries.
