Turkish Apricot Update
Turkey is experiencing unprecedented warm weather. We have broken record highs for the past 2 days, with weather in Malatya exceeding 20 C by day and 5 C by night, average for this time of the year is 5 C during the day and –2 C at night. Izmir has seen 27 C the previous record for February was 24 C !
The forecast for the coming 10 days is for similar weather, which would probably result in a very risky February apricot bloom a full month earlier than usual.
