Macedonia: Biggest apple crop in the past 5 years

According to the FFRM (Federation of Farmers of Republic of Macedonia), Macedonia expects a record apple production this season.

The apple crop is expected to be around 150 thousand tones, of which more than 100 thousand tones are from the region of Prespa.

Harvesting is almost at an end and varieties such as: Golden, Red Delicious, Granny Smith, Chadelle and Mutsu have already finished harvesting while the most important variety which counts approx. 80% of the country's total apple production, Idared, is still being picked.

Export also has already started in varieties such as Golden and Red Delicious, Granny Smith and Chadelle.

According to Besnik Osmani, from International Prespa Apples, prices for all varieties are approximate, except for Red Delicious clones (Red Chief and Red Cap) which are much more expensive, "growers are satisfied with the prices for the moment and expect more increases due to a big demand from our neighbors (Serbia, Bulgaria, Montenegro and Bosnia)."

The export for the main Iraqi market its expected to start in the late November.
