Taginfo is your friend to find out what tags are most commonly used.
It tells you on
landuse=orchard + trees=*: 82k cases
landuse=orchard + crop=*: 4.9k cases
landuse=orchard + produce=*: 2.9 cases
and you can also see that genus=* and species=* are much more common
than crop=* or produce=*.
If you look at:
You can see that this tag is most commonly used for farmland.
If you look down the list you can also spot 945 cases of
which - if you follow the link to overpass turbo - turn out to all be on
an island in Nicaragua in combination with landuse=orchard.
Safe to say that trees=* is the dominating method to tag what is grown
in an orchard.
Note the wiki is currently fairly unclear about the separation between
landuse=orchard and landuse=farmland. On
it suggests landuse=plantation for fruit bushes which links to
landuse=plant_nursery which is clearly unsuited for this purpose. This
seriously needs clarification.
