MALATYA. The first arrivals of the new apricot crop are reaching the Turkish markets, but still in small quantities. The quality cannot keep up with last year's, moreover the small varieties are scarce in the new season.

Drying still goes well

Harvesting in the Turkish valleys has been completed in the meantime, while it is continuing at higher altitudes. At the same time, drying of the apricots is continuing and growers expect this process to be completed by the end of August. The temperatures in Malatya are currently very high, which is extremely welcome for the farmers for the drying phase. Nevertheless, due to the hail and rainfalls of the last months, the fruit show defects and the overall quality of the crop is worse than last year.
