Abstract In a field experiment the transfer of PCDD/PCDF from contaminated soils to apples and pears was investigated. The soil PCDD/PCDF contamination differed in total PCDD/PCDF content and in the homologue pattern. PCDD/PCDF content in whole fruits ranged from 1-4 ng/kg FW. Soil PCDD/PCDF contamination was not correlated with the PCDD/PCDF concentrations of the fruits. The higher PCDD/PCDF concentrations of the peel in comparison to the pulp indicate that air-borne PCDD/PCDF is the major pathway for fruit contamination. Therefore peeling of fruits can possibly reduce PCDD PCDF intake.
