Association expects fall in sour cherry harvest
Hungarian orchards are expected to produce 65,000 tons of sour cherries this year, significantly less as compared to last year’s 90,000 last year, Ferenc Ledo, the head of professional association FruitVeB told Hungarian daily Magyar Hírlap. The association head, however, expects sweet cherry harvest to reach 18,000 tons, level with last year.
Ledo added that Hungarian farmers planted more watermelon this year, while the peach and apricot harvests are expected to be smaller. He expects apple harvest to come around 700,000 tons and the pepper harvest to be 180,000 tons. Farmers are expected to harvest 120,000 tons of tomatoes and 37,000 tons of sweet corn.
