AYDIN/TEHRAN. The Turkish fig farmers are still in good spirits for this year's crop, but frost damage cannot be ruled out in the coming days. In Iran, meanwhile, rivers are about to dry up this year; they are an important water supply for the main growing region of black figs.

Justified optimism?

The Turkish dried fig market is quiet. Trees have started to bud locally and, as with sultana production, the second half of this week could once again hold a greater risk. Currently, growers are still expecting a good crop as long as frost damage is moderate and rainfall provides sufficient moisture. This should increase the yield compared to tlast year. If the enormous heat and drought of the past summer do not occur, the proportion of high-quality figs should also be significantly higher. Dried figs, Lerida, no 2 are being offered for USD
