Fruitcartoons - 10 year Eurofruitcartoonale Sint-Truiden

Tasting a good piece of fruit makes me think at the catalogue that celebrates 10 years of Eurofruitcartoonale (Sint-Truiden, Belgium) published earlier this year.
It's a selection out of more than 3000 Eurofruitcartoonale cartoons.

With the Eurofruitcartoonale, the city of Sint-Truiden promotes the fruit region Haspengouw.

Haspengouw (Dutch), is a region spanning the south of the Belgian province of Limburg, the east of the Belgian provinces of Flemish Brabant and Walloon Brabant, and the northwestern part of the province of Liège. The Limburgish portion contains the cities of Tongeren, Sint-Truiden, Bilzen and Borgloon, the Flemish Brabantian portion includes Tienen, Landen and Zoutleeuw, the Walloon Brabantian portion includes Jodoigne and the Liège portion contains among others Hannut and Waremme.

The fertile ground of this region's rolling countryside is mainly used for agricultural purposes, and particularly for fruit growing. Haspengouw is by far the main fruit growing area of Belgium.
