This article aims at presentation of the basic conditions of growth of horticultural products’ export from Poland (internal and external) at the background of past foreign trends in their sale (examined in 2001-2012). The analyses held point to a dynamic growth of horticultural products’ export from Poland after accession to the EU. But the persistently low level of supply concentration (fresh products), rather insignificant adjustment of domestic products to the voluntary quality control systems and insufficient use of funds for promotion on foreign markets, is still a barrier to sustained dynamic export growth. Situation on the global market points to continued, relatively significant, demand for the majority of fruit, vegetables and their products produced in Poland. This, however, does not apply to onions and frozen strawberries.
