"An Empirical Assessment of Phytosanitary Regulations on US Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Imports"
by Karov, Vuko, Donna Roberts, Jason Grant and Everett Peterson

US imports of fresh fruits and vegetables have grown substantially in recent decades and account for a steadily increasing share of domestic consumption. Since 1989, the value of US fresh vegetable imports has increased from $811.5 million to $4,680.4 million in 2008, or an annual growth rate of 9.7 percent (USDA/FAS)1. During this same period, the value of US fresh fruit imports increased from $1,958.4 million to $6,802.5 million, or an annual growth rate of 6.8 percent. The rate of growth in imports of fresh vegetables has exceeded the rate of growth in total agricultural imports, with the fresh vegetable share of total US agricultural imports increasing from 3.4 percent in 1989 to 5.5 percent in 2008. The rate of growth in imports of fresh fruits has been almost identical to rate of growth in total agricultural imports, with the import share of fresh fruits in total agricultural imports holding near 8 percent.
