Abstract

In my paper, I focus on what role fruit production played in Eger, which tree species were preferred, and how the phylloxera plague in the 1880s contributed to making vegetable and fruit production an important branch of agriculture in the hóstyas (outer districts) of Eger. The relevant, primarily ethnographic data-collection highlights that research into independent folk fruit production started only late and only in some areas. By combining these data, we can still gather much information on issues about fruit production from the studies dealing with farming. The agricultural journals of Eger launched from the second third of the 19th century provide further analysis of the fruit production in Eger.
