TEHRAN. In Iran, the harvest for dried fig production has started earlier than usual. Meanwhile, export prices are showing significant declines.

Farmers prefer dried figs

The province of Fars is the largest producer of dried figs in Iran. The towns of Estahban and Neyriz play a particularly important role in production. In Estahban, the harvest has started earlier than usual this year. The acreage is 24,000 ha and market players reckon that about 10,500 mt of figs can be harvested. Harvesting for fresh figs traditionally starts as early as July, but as these have to meet complicated storage conditions, growers usually prefer dried figs, which can easily be stored for several months.
