Hungarian orchard farmers are facing frost damage to their early blooming peach and apricot crops for the third year in a row, business daily Világgazdaság said earlier this week "

It's practically certain that colder temperatures with evening frost after Easter have caused significant damage in apricot and peach orchards," Péter Kelemen, the deputy head of orchard association FruitVeB told the paper.

If frost returns in May, later blooming apple, pear, cherry and plum trees could be impacted, the paper added.
