TEHRAN. Quchan city in the Khorasan Razavi Province is a production hub for seedless raisins, which attract buyers from all over the world, especially from Europe. As much as 25% of production are, in fact, exported to Europe.

Due to improved irrigation systems and scaffolding of the grapes yields have tripled to an average of 16 metric tonnes per hectare. Quchan can thereby most certainly compete with Turkey and India, which employ mechanised methods of cultivation. As little as 20,000 metric tonnes of the 80,000 metric tonnes of grapes harvested in Quchan each year are consumed fresh, remaining volumes are processed into sultanas and raisins. The weak rial has prompted a decline in prices over the last two weeks. Sultanas are trading EUR 0.07 per kg lower at EUR 1.40 per kg FOB Iran and golden raisins EUR 0.09 per kg lower at EUR 2.00 per kg FOB Iran.
