In 2013, walnut prices hit an all-time record high of $3,710 a ton, the industry metric, for the in-shell price to the grower, or $1.85 a pound. That fact seems to have had ramifications all the way up to today. “There were a lot of walnut plantings right around 2014 through ’17,” Fumasi says. “Driven by high prices, growers were doing more planting, and those trees are coming into production.” That’s one reason for the record crop expected this year — 19% larger than the 2019 crop, according to USDA. The bigger crops have brought down walnut prices, and now the estimate for the 2020 blend price is 75 cents per pound.
However, on the bright side, total exports for the first month of this marketing year are up, oddly enough, exactly as much as the crop size, 19%. China is not buying a lot of walnuts — even though they can grow them, many Chinese prefer higher-quality American walnuts, and they remain an important customer. But Europe is the top customer, Fumasi says, and they have picked up the pace. “So far exports are robust this year, albeit on lower prices,” he says. “Growers need that increase because of the expected size of the crop.
