Global prices for fresh and frozen raspberries are at record highs. There has already been a second raspberry boom in Ukraine, one of the global leaders in raspberry exports. Similar trends are apparent in Serbia, Poland and other leading countries. Now, it looks like a change is starting in Uzbekistan. EastFruit experts have noted that the establishment of new raspberry plantations with the total planned area of 300 hectares has started in the Fergana region of Uzbekistan.
Back in mid-August 2021, plans to expand the raspberry plantation in this region were reported. Given that the climate of the region is well suited for growing raspberries, 300 hectares of unused land were allocated for new berry plantations. Recently, work started on the establishment of new raspberry plantations in the “Vodil Kizilkurgan” massif.
