Production

Fruit and vegetables are high value crops with a wide diversity in species grown on relatively small production areas (3% of the EU’s cultivated area). Each species requires its own set of specific growing conditions to achieve the optimal productivity and quality. While certain fruit and vegetables are grown in similar ways as arable crops (e.g. onions, cabbage); fruit orchards and greenhouse production are distinct features of the fruit and vegetable sector.

Fruit and vegetable holdings in the EU-27 are typically small businesses with an average less than 10 hectares in terms of utilised agricultural area. In most of the Member States that joined the EU in 2004 and 2007, the average size of each holding is even less than 1 hectare, with the majority of these small holdings being situated in countries like Poland, Romania or Bulgaria.
