Market Access List

The following is an edited and translated version of the list of fresh fruits permissible for import into China provided by China’s General Administration of Customs (GAC).

Updated July 31, 2020.

Notes:

  • We have followed GAC’s ordering of continents, but for the list of countries/regions within each continent, we have rearranged into alphabetical order according to each region’s common English name
  • Latin names are as written in the GAC document
  • Bolding and underlines were added by Produce Report to improve readability
  • The order of fruits within each country/region is the same as in the original GAC document, and generally reflects the order in which the fruits were granted permission for import into China
