The fact that 2021 will not be a favorite year for fruit growers was already known in the spring, when an unusually cold and cloudy period came after the mild winter months. The morning frosts were felt not only by the acacia but also by the orchards.

President of FruitVeB does not expect a good plum crop

Hungary grew 5,300 hectares of plums in the time of the EU accession, which has been growing steadily for the next 10 years, and by 2015 it had approached 8,000 hectares, Apáti Ferenc told Agrarszektor. The president of FruitVeB pointed out that in the last four years, however, the production area has started to fall sharply, currently Hungarians only grow plums on 6,400 hectares. The most significant growing areas are located in Bács-Kiskun, Pest and Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg counties. (
