German term or phrase: Lagerobst
A description of the fruit harvest in the EU: "Während der Rückgang in 2000 überwiegend durch eine schwächere Zitrusernte verursacht wurde, verteilen sich die Ausfälle in 2001 auf eine breitere Palette von Produkten, Sommerobst, wie auch Herbst- und Lagerobst..."

winter-storable fruits / off-season storable fruits
Explanation:
the talk here is obviously of fruit that can be stored longterm, in other words until the next harvest. Hence also the talk of summer and autumn fruits (whereas there is no mention of spring or winter fruits because no fruits are being harvested then). Apples more than anything else is really what it is all about.

Thanks for the answer, e-rich. I also had a hunch that apples and pears and other "storable" fruits were meant here. But I couldn't find an English term. I've decided to go with off-season storable fruits.

agree  StefanR: but seems a bit long, would just call it "storeable fruits."

  -> thanks, Stefan. I thought about that but decided against it because: what is the definition of length of storage and therefore storable

agree  5Q: Yes, it refers to fruit that keeps well, such as apples.
