In general, the study of this type of exports has been approached from a local perspective, regardless of the great diversity of agroclimatic conditions in the country. The objective of this article is to characterize the evolution and dynamics in of Chilean fruit exports the last decade from a regional perspective. For this, data were obtained from official sources and analyzed using descriptive statistics techniques and various indexes. The results obtained show that fruit is mainly exported from the central area of the country, where the regions have a greater share of the exports and also an important offer of fruits exported to different international markets.
