Turkish cherry growers’ put hopes in ‘Napoleon’
In the Bayramic province, in the foothills of Mount Ida, the price of the cherry orchards early crop, known as the ‘Lambert’ type of cherries, is not enough to meet labour costs. Cherry growers say they are in a difficult position due to the wholesale price falling to 32 cents a kilo. Neslihan Ozdemir (40) from Serhat village, poured out her troubles:
“A worker in the cherry orchard gets 16 Euro for collecting 30 kilos of product a day. This situation is damaging the grower. In some ways we have to pick the cherries, but in other ways we shouldn’t. We’re picking the cherries, but not making any money. If we don’t pick them, they won’t produce a crop in the coming years. We have no choice but to collect the fruit. But this situation is damaging us.”
Wholesalers also puzzled
At Bayramic’s market hall, cherry wholesaler Necmi Simsek states, “We’re puzzled too. The early cherries stayed on the branches. The biggest problem was an absence of cherry exporters in the region. Growers hopes are tied to the type of cherry for exportation known as the “Ziraat 900” “Napoleon”. The new crop is beginning to be picked again. But, if an exporter doesn’t come, then buyers will take the Napoleon cherry for either 64 cents or 79 cents.”
