The Swiss Fruit Association provided information on the pome fruit season in Fruthwilen, Thurgau, on Tuesday. Because of the good weather, the harvest started about six days earlier than usual, it said. The harvest peaks in mid-September and lasts until the end of October. Producers expect good yields.

For the first time, more than 85 percent of the pome fruit area is produced according to the new industry program “Sustainability Fruits”. The program with nine sustainability goals and a broad catalog of measures is a response to the increased demands of consumers, it said.
