Map No. 42

The net fruit imports of Western European territories are four times greater than the combined net fruit imports of territories in any other region. This is when only the values for territories with positive net imports are added together. The map shows these figures.

An alternative total is net imports to the region as a whole - the graph shows these. By this measure Western Europe has only double the net fruit imports of any other region. Half of the territories in the top ten table of fruit imports per person are in Western Europe.

"In Japan, dark-orange persimmon fruits on trees set against the backdrop of a clear blue autumn sky is a common sight. There are about one thousand kinds of persimmon in Japan.", 2006

Territory size shows the proportion of worldwide net imports of fruit (in US$) that are received there. Net imports are imports minus exports. When exports are larger than imports the territory is not shown.
