AYDIN. The pollination period in Turkey will soon be over and in the coming weeks it should become clear whether the untypical weather conditions have affected the fig trees. The first crop forecasts were already announced last week.

Yields are revealed

In Turkey, the pollination phase of the fig trees is almost over. Whether it was successful will be revealed at the beginning of June, when the figs begin to ripen. Unfertilised fruits are usually shed from the trees shortly before the beginning of the ripening period. Only then will it also become clear whether this spring's predominantly cool and wet weather has affected the yields as little as hoped. The harvest can usually take place between August and September.
