Mulberries and apricots are growing in the same region, in the South East of Turkey. In the first week of April, there was not any major frost in the area of Malatya and at the end of April the frost risk dropped down to zero.
A good and big crop is expected for both apricots and mulberries. The quality of the mulberries, however, is still depending on the conditions in the coming months as the berries are slowly maturing and sun dried.
We have an expectation for high crop of bigger numbers of apricots. This may cause to pull the prices down and to increase availability.
Get in contact prior to new crop to start negotiations.
