The professional cultivation of apples increased markedly in between the years 2012 and 2017. The number of apple trees increased by 38 percent to just under 3.6 million trees, while the planted area increased by 11 percent to 1 660 hectares. During the period 2013 through 2017, over 1.2 million apple trees were planted on an area of 450 hectares, which means that more than a third of the total number of apple trees were planted during the latest five-year period.
The most common varieties in 2017 were Ingrid Marie, Aroma and Discovery, which together accounted for 52 percent of the total amount of apple trees. Aside from these three classical varieties, the composition of the cultures is rapidly changing. The relatively new varieties Rubinola, Frida, Elise and Santana increased markedly compared with earlier years and accounted for a quarter of the total amount of trees in 2017. Meanwhile, the share of older varieties such as Cox Orange and Gravensteiner is declining.
