042 Fruit Imports
Fruit constitutes 0.8% of international trade (when measured in US dollars).
The fruit category is made up of fresh and dried fruit and nuts (0.5% of international trade), and preserved and prepared fruit (0.2% of international trade).
Imports are products that are moved into a territory prior to consumption. The data displayed here is only concerned with international imports. Net imports are the total imports of a product, minus the total exports of a product. When the result of this sum is positive, net imports have been recorded. If it is negative then the territory has net exports.

The quote used on the poster is from the Japanese website, for which a link is given below. The quote was accessed in February 2006. The original spelling has been corrected from “There are about one thousands kinds of persimmon in Japan.” to “There are about one thousand kinds of persimmon in Japan .”
Below is an explanation of each of the columns in the excel file:
Column A = Unique numerical territory (see 001).
Column B = Region and territory names (see 001).
Column C = Region code (see 001).
Column D = The ISO 3 code, or ISO ALPHA-3 (see 001).
Column E = Net fruit imports, in millions of US dollars. This is calculated by multiplying net fruit imports per person (column F) by population in millions (column G) (E = F * G).
Column F = Net fruit imports in US dollars per person. This is calculated by dividing net fruit imports in millions of US dollars (column H) by total population in millions (column G) (F = H/G).
Column G = Population in 2002, in millions. See the technical notes for ‘Total Population’ for the sources of this data (002).
Column H = Net fruit imports in 2002, in millions of US$. The number is taken from column E on the source data sheet, where the value of imports is expressed in thousands of US$, this number is divided by 1000.
The source data is in the source data sheet. Net exports and net imports, are calculated as follows:
Net exports = exports minus imports. When imports are larger than exports the territory is not shown.
Net imports = imports minus exports. When exports are larger than imports the territory is not shown.
