Turkish Fig Market Report
There have been difficulties this year with finding good quality figs. This is due to the unfavorable, extremely hot weather conditions experienced in Turkey.
This hot weather has impacted both quality and pricing. It is important to note that there is a significant price gap between lowland fruits and mountain fruits. This has been seen more in larger sized figs, where there is a significant lack of raw material available. It has been recommended to book cover on all larger size figs, as good quality material is becoming tighter by the day.
