45 million metric tons of apples were grown worldwide in 2002, with a value of about 10 billion USD. China produced almost half of this total. The United States is the second leading producer, accounting for 10% of world production. Turkey is also a leading producer. France, Italy, South Africa and Chile are among the leading apple exporters.

Today, more than 60% of all the apples sold commercially in the United States are grown in Washington state. This may change. Imported apples from New Zealand and other more temperate areas are competing with domestic production and increasing each year.
