MALATYA. The harvesting phase in the Turkish growing regions has already begun and will soon be replaced by the drying phase. So far, the producers are optimistic, but the upcoming Eid celebrations pose some challenges.

All sizes available

Last week, the governor of Malatya gave a first crop estimate for the new season, according to which the region will produce 86,000 mt of dried apricots. Not all market players agree with this, some expect significantly higher quantities of up to 100,000 mt. However, even if the lower estimates turn out to be true, crops in the surrounding regions allow for at least 95,000 mt of dried apricots. Farmers also report high quality and indicate that fruits in all common sizes will be available.
