This article aims to identify the key groups of regions with respect to farms oriented to fruit and citrus production. Twenty variables of fruit and citrus oriented farms corresponding to forty-one regions of the European Union were analysed. Seven groups emerged from cluster analysis. Only two of them showed good perspectives. Regions in the South of the Community need an important modernization and restructuring process, which entails serious social consequences.
