Statistics

 

Turkish edible nuts and dried fruit production is extremely high and dominates world markets in this respect. Among edible nuts and dried fruits, hazelnuts, pistachios, sultanas, dried apricots and figs are of significant importance for Turkey. Due to this importance, they are called traditional agricultural export products of Turkey.

Historical documents reveal that hazelnuts have been grown along the Black Sea Coast in northern Turkey since 300 B.C. Turkey leads the field with its prominent position among hazelnut producing countries.

Fig cultivation is believed to belong to the Mediterranean basin, especially to Anatolia. Accordingly, the local fig species (Ficus carica) derived its botanical name from the historic district, Caira, in the western part of Turkey. Producing 36 percent of the world's total fig production, Turkey has a share of 70-75 percent in total world exports.

Sultanas and apricots are among the traditional agricultural export products of Turkey. Their production is quite high and Turkish dried sultanas and apricots dominate world markets.
