The long flowering time and the cold weather have had a strong impact on Norway’s fruit season. According to one report, the plumes are worse off, with a yield drop of almost 80%.

The projection from the Fruit Storage Inspectorate also shows a reduction in apple harvests of around 3,000 tons compared to 2019.

As for the harvest, the season is already coming to an end, and there has been a shortfall in production of almost 80%, according to the Directorate of Agriculture.

According to the outlook, the fruit crop appears to have declined by at least 40% compared to last year.

But all is not dark and gloomy.

Many good quality Norwegian vegetables can be found in shops.

The start of the sauerkraut season is leading to a price war over cabbage in Norwegian stores, the Directorate wrote in its weekly report on the market and prices.

This year’s turnips, broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, potatoes for cooking, carrots, and spring onions will be among the vegetables that will maintain high quality.
