There are different varieties planted in the area, but most of them are Golden, and the rest (Gala, American Red and Fuji) are decreasing in percentage.

Real measurement from europruning

Data obtained through direct survey work carried out by CREA-ING -  Consiglio per la ricerca in agricoltura e l'analisi dell'economia agraria through EuroPruning Task 3.1 and Deliverable D3.1 Mapping and analysis of the pruning biomass potential in Europe.
