Norwegian farmers expect record plum season

Norwegian farmers expect record plum season

It looks like Norwegian farmers will register a record plum season. Production is close to double compared to last year.

Inspector Leif Øie in Lofthus told the newspaper Nationen that there has never been a better plum season. According to him, there are several reasons: very good growing conditions and the contributions of newly cultivated crops. This year’s season could generate 2 million kilos of plums.

“In the next few weeks, there will be several types of plums at once. Opal, Mallard, Jubilee, Reevs, and Viktoria are among the largest varieties. The Norwegian plum season is short, so they must be enjoyed now. There is a lot of activity on plum plantations and in packing plants at the moment. Many hands are working. Plums are picked and packed and sent out to the shops at record speed,” Øie stated in a press release from the Information Office for Fruit and Vegetables.

Vestland, Vestfold og Telemark, Hedmark (Innlandet), and Buskerud (Viken) are the country’s largest plum counties.

Plum farmer Atle Tærum at Skott Gård by the Drammenselva in Øvre Eiker says this is one of his peak years.

“This year, I will deliver 15 tonnes of first-grade plums to Coop. That is twice as much as last year, when delivery was only seven tonnes,” Tærum told the newspaper.
