TRENDS IN ROMANIA`S FRUIT MARKET
AbstractFruit market is a dynamic sector in Romanian agriculture. In 2010, the surface of orchards was 198.6 thousand ha by 36 % smaller and production accounted for 1.429 thousand tons by 3 % less than in 1990. Consumption increased to 63.3 kg fruits/inhabitant. The most fruit amounts are produced in the South, North West and West parts of the country. Romania comes on the 8th position in the EU, contributing by 3.01 % to its fruit production. The fruit offer is diverse, but consumption is still below the EU average. Despite that Romania is a net fruit importing country, export growth rate is higher than the import rate.
