Turkish growers expect that the harvest in the valley plains could be finished next week. As it starts a few weeks later in the higher altitudes, the end of the harvest will be later accordingly.

Nevertheless, the crop is increasingly showing defects due to hail and frost damage to the fruit, and it will be difficult to find sufficiently spotless goods.
