IZMIR. The cultivation of stone fruit is an important economic sector for Turkey. The country is not only one of the most important producers worldwide, but also one of the largest exporters. Offers for dried sour cherries from this year's crop are expected in about a month.

While Turkey grows both sour and sweet cherries, the latter represent a much larger share of the market. Over the past decades, more and more cherry plantations have been established, enabling the country to become one of the leading suppliers. According to Turkish authorities, about 34.5 million cherry trees are commercially cultivated in Turkey. While the number of sweet cherry trees increased from 14.7 million to 21.1 million in the past ten years, the number of sour cherry trees remained largely stable.
