The first Turkish Sultana grapes have arrived at Enes Groenten en Fruit in Venlo. According to Ercument Saka, people are desperate for the first Sultanas. "There is plenty of demand from supermarkets to wholesalers and market vendors, the telephone is ringing off the hook. I've already sold the first truck."
He is also very satisfied with the quality of the grapes. The quality, taste and sugar content of the grapes are good. The grapes are also beautifully yellow, this early in the season. That is promising for the rest of the season. We expect a better season than last year. "
