MALATYA. Although the harvest is progressing rapidly in Turkey, hardly any dried apricots have reached the markets so far. Nevertheless, the first price indications are already making the rounds.

Slow drying process

In Malatya, the harvest is still in full swing and has picked up speed after the holiday week. According to local farmers, the trees in the lowlands have already been harvested, but very few apricots have been dried so far, so that only small quantities of dried apricots from the new crop are reaching the markets. The hot temperatures of 38-40°C, however, benefit the drying process, which should now accelerate. Producers report good quality fruit with even more flesh than in the previous season.
