Spring has come to the plum trees early
Early plums grown in a greenhouse in the district of Erdemli in Mersin, flowered 15 to 20 days earlier than last year.
Plum trees wearing bridal gowns in the greenhouses reminded me of spring with bees landing on flowers. Producers predict that plums will arrive at the table about 15-20 days earlier with early flowering.
One of the producers, Adem Keskin, stated that plum trees bloom 15-20 days earlier than last year due to the warm weather. Keskin said, "Only this is not the case for every grower's greenhouse. Some plum trees still did not bloom around us. Those plums also corresponded to the same weather conditions. But here my brother, especially my nephew, who is the producer, has a great function in this. This is also a delicacy. This year, we expect to harvest 20 days and 25 days earlier than last year. Of course, if there is no disaster damage from Allah, there is no problem right now. It is going very well. I hope it leaves a good revenue for its producer.
"Let's not be happy about the weather conditions"
Producer İhsan Keskin said, "This year, our trees have an earliness 15 days in advance. But let's not be happy that the weather conditions are like this. This is a sad thing. Compared to January, this weather is not very bright for our future. If it does not rain, it does not snow, there is no water" he spoke.
