Almond is also grown in most parts of the country. Almonds, similar to walnut, were partly affected from the late spring frosts which occurred in March and April and hail storms in April and May depending on the location of orchards and region in MY 2017. Post forecasts a slight decline of 6 percent to 14,100 MT in almond production in MY 2017, down from 15,100 MT last year. Post forecasts that almond imports will also continue due to demand for high quantity and quality almonds in the Turkish market.
