Turkey: Fresh Deciduous Fruit Annual

Turkish pear growers have invested in new orchards due to increasing demand

The apple production for Turkey in Marketing Year 2021/22 is expected to be 4.28 million tons, slightly less than the 4.3 MT of apple production in MY 2020/2021 due to frost damage in some regions in late May. Total pear production is forecasted to be 535,000 MT, down about 3 percent from 550,000 MT of pear production in MY 2020/21.

The table grape production forecast in Turkey for MY 2021/22 is about 1.94 MT, 12 percent less than MY 2010/21 due to frost damage in the late spring. Fresh fruit exporters are hopeful for the new marketing year with a weak Turkish Lira supporting additional exports.

Pears
The major varieties of pears in Turkey are Santa Maria, Akca, Mustafabey, Cassia, Williams, Ankara, and Deveci. Enjoying increasing demand, Turkish farmers have invested in new orchards, uprooted  non-commercial varieties, and replanted with trees suitable for export markets in recent years. The planting area of pears increased around three percent over the last five years.
