15 percent of fruit area in Germany is organic

In Germany organic stone fruit is grown on an area of 7,500 hectares, the NFO reports. This translates into a share of 15 percent of the total fruit tree area. Most of the organic area, over 6,000 ha, consists of apples. In pears, sweet cherries and plums the area is around 300 hectares for each. Sour cherries are grown organically on around 175 hectares. This was concluded by the German AMI based on figures from the German bureau for statistics Destatis. In the Netherlands the area of organic fruit cultivation has been between 400 and 500 hectares for years.
