Oltenia region is one of the most favorable for the cultivation of species of temperate climate fruit (apple,plum, peach, apricot, walnut, etc.). It contains numerous micro (pools fruit) with optimal environmental conditions,cultural traditions, economic and social interest to allow the achievement of quality performance and international tradeof fruit produced on the farm. Microzonarea, establishing the sorts of valuable varieties and application of hightechnologies allow both a high productivity/ha, and obtain special quality fruit. The fruits examined in several speciesand varieties showed performance was monitored in terms of morphological quality, taste, the content of heavy metals(Cd, Pb and Cu) and residues from some pesticides (αHCH, γHCH, PCB52 , PCB28, PCB180, HCB, heptachlor, aldrin,εHCH, Heptachlor - Epoxy, βendosulfan, PP'-DDE, etc.). Elements have been pursued as compared with those used inthe EU and international trade. The fruits of apple, plum, peach, apricot and walnut orchards in Oltenia basins obtainedlegally correspond morphologically as size, weight, color and uniformity is achieved while respecting their microzonăriiand superior technologies. Taste of the fruits from Oltenia farms is far superior to other similar fruit from other areas ofculture. Fruits of Oltenia meet commercial and sanogen because they contain heavy metal (Cd and Pb), well below themaximum level of EU fruit and some pesticide residue content is below the international standards or missing entirely(αHCH, Aldrin, εHCH, PCB 180) and others are found in very small quantities, without an influence on consumers. Toensure high quality fruit in Oltenia is necessary to provide constant monitoring and accountability.
