This is the case of apple trees grown on an industrial scale in orchards. Depending on the production methods used (pollination, fertilization, irrigation), this figure can rise to 800 fruits per year, and even 1200 in some cases. The yield of a well maintained apple tree in an individual garden will be between 80 and 150 fruits per year.
Every year, 1.7 million tonnes of apples are produced in France on average, of which 38% are exported. It is the most consumed fruit in France, far ahead of banana and orange.
