Fruit

Survey of commercial plantations

This survey, to be conducted every five years under the provisions of EU-regulation 1337/2011, provides comprehensive data on the area planted and the variety of fruit planted in certain fruit plantations as well as detailed information on the number and the age of trees and their regional density in Austria.

Survey on fruit plantations 2017

With reference date of 15 November 2017 Statistics Austria carried out the survey on fruit plantations based on the national Regulation BGBl. II Nr 247/2017.

Due to the results, 3 909 holdings cultivated fruits, which is 7% less compared to the previous comprehensive survey 2007. The total area reached 15 700 ha (+15% to 2007). Nearly half of the area (49%) was grown with apples, 16% were berries (incl. Aronia), 10% nuts, 9% elderberries, 6% apricots, 4% pears, 2% cherries (incl. sour cherries), 2% plums and 1% peaches (incl. nectarines).

While the area of apples with 7 700 ha decreased by 3% compared to the survey 2012 (where only apples, pears, apricots and peaches were included), apricots showed a significant increase by 17% to 1 000 ha. Pears also registered a surplus of 15% to 620 ha.

As the survey criteria 2017 have been partly changed considering the previous surveys (2007 and 2012) the comparability to them is limited.

2019 fruit harvest

According to Statistics Austria, a production of 225 200 tons of dessert fruits was achieved in 2019 following a year of very high pome fruit harvest. This is about one fifth below the previous year's production (-21%) and corresponds to the ten years average. Pome fruit reached a quantity of 190 600 tons (-25% compared to 2018) and decreased below the ten years average level (-3%). The production of stone fruit came to 15 600 tons - that was 7% over the production of the previous year and 27% over the ten years average. The harvest of berries yielded 18 700 tons, which was 13% over the ten years average and 14% over the previous year's level. Apples, the main Austrian fruit species, brought a harvest of 184 300 tons (-23% compared to 2018). Apricots achieved a very high production of 9 500 tons (+24% to 2018) and strawberries reached an amount of 13 600 tons (+25% to 2018).
