Academic Writing - Model Answer (Task 1)

The two pie charts show the proportion of fruit and vegetables produced in the E.U. in 2009.

57 million tons of vegetables were cultivated in 2009, the largest percentage was 46.7% which corresponds to other vegetables. Almost 30% of the produce was tomatoes. Onions and carrots were produced in almost equal proportions whilst only 4.2% of the vegetables were lettuces.

A considerably less amount of fruit was produced, 36 million tons, a third of which were apples and 3.3% less other fruit. Oranges accounted for 17.8% of the fruit produced, while the production of peaches was considerably less (8.2%). Pears and strawberries made up 7.7% and 2.6% of the fruit produced.

In 2009 the E.U. produced more vegetables than fruit. Apples were the most grown fruit while strawberries were not grown very much. In terms of vegetables, almost half the vegetables produced were other vegetables and the least grown were lettuces.
