MALATYA. Growers in Turkey are highly satisfied wit the current famgate prices for dried apricots. Exporters have issued first prices for shipments of the new crop. Caution, however, prevails as it is highly risky to issue offers at present.

Heat good for drying

Growers in Turkey are very much satisfied with current farmgate prices. Average farmgate prices range at TRY 8/kg as opposed to only TRY 5/kg last year. The extreme heat with which Turkey is struggling at present is good for the apricots, which are laid out for drying in Malatya. Prices are high. Dried apricots no 4 are trading at TRY 28/kg. They, by contrast only ranged at TRY 22-23/kg last year. Unsulphured apricots are trading in a range of TRY 33-35/kg as opposed to TRY 30/kg one year ago.
