Azerbaijan plans to produce 200,000 tons of persimmons by the end of this year, which will slightly exceed last year's figure, said Gadir Yusifov, the chairman of the Azerbaijan Association of Persimmon Producers and Exporters, who added that the revenues obtained from the export of these products in 2017 amounted to $100 million.
This is a fairly good result, believes the chairman of the association, since this amount is expected to be stable in monetary terms this year, partly due to the fact that about 90 percent of this output is shipped abroad, including Russia, Belarus, Moldova, the Baltic states, Ukraine and Kazakhstan, while 10 percent of this product is sold in the domestic market, which fully meets the needs of Azerbaijani consumers.
“In general, the export of persimmons to the mentioned countries did not exceed 180,000 tons in 2017,” he said.
Presently, Azerbaijan’s persimmons are mainly exported to Russia, Belarus, Moldova, the Baltic countries, Ukraine and Kazakhstan.
Persimmon exports from Azerbaijan amounted to $90.8 million by value in 2017, 32 percent rise compared with the last yearís figures. Russia is always the key market for Azerbaijani persimmons with 102,579 tons valued at $84.8, marking 24 percent and 30 percent in volume and value terms respectively. In 2017, Russia accounted for 87 percent of persimmon exports from Azerbaijan.
