I came across the phrase "permanent crop" in The World Factbook, in a description of land use. What does it mean?

This question is too basic; it can be definitively and permanently answered by a single link to a standard internet reference source designed specifically to find that type of information. See the FAQ for guidance on how to improve it.
It means that a particular plant (crop) is always grown there. This is in contrast to growing different crops there each season and year to year.
