Turkey benefits from very good climatic and ecological conditions which enhance the potential for the production of many varieties of fruit and vegetables. The conditions are particularly good for the cultivation of citrus fruit which is the most important sub-group of the fresh fruits and vegetables sector in Turkey. Citrus fruit production ranks fourth place among fresh produce in Turkey.

With an export of 3.3 million tons of fresh fruit and more than one million tons of fresh vegetables, Turkey is among top ten exporting countries for these types of produce.
