These are the fruits that first meet us after a cold winter. Throughout Azerbaijan, these fruits are mainly
cultivated everywhere but especially in Northern (cherry) and Southern and Western (strawberry) parts.
The Main sorts of strawberry are “San Andreas”, “Portola”, “Victoria”, “Albion”, “Monterey” which can be
weighted 20-40 gr per each. For cherry, largely cultivated types are “Ziraat 0900” and “Napoleon”.
The Thenumber of cherry gardens with EU standards (HACCP, EUREPGAP) are increas-ing.
Summer fruits are the ones which have a long history for Azerbaijan. As they have rich cultivation experience with
these fruits, they are being harvested in almost all parts of our motherland. For peach “Elbert”, “Salami”, “UFO”
and for nectarine “Boston”, “Victoria”, “Krasnodares”, “UFO” are the main sorts that are being cultivated
especially in Northern part of Azerbaijan. On the other hand, Apricot is harvested mainly in Nakhchivan and
has 2 main local sorts: “Badam әrik”, “Qırmızı yanaq”.
Autumn fruits are considered strategic commodities for Azerbaijan as every year they are available
in thousands of tons. Our team has exclusive experience on working with these fruits. For all these, there are
many cold storage ware-houses all over Azerbaijan and they enable the shelf life of the commodities to get
longer. “Guloysha”, “Valas”, “Udullu”, “Talibli” for pomegranate, “Rocco Brilliant”, “Fuyu”, “Round” for
persimmon, “Pink Lady”, “Gala”, “Granny Smith”, “Golden”, “Red Delicious” for apple, “Santa Maria”, “Forest
Beauty” for pear are the mainly traded sorts for each fruit.
Vegetable cultivation is famous in almost all over Azerbaijan and the farmers are already mastered in doing
it in green-houses. This enables the market to be active all year and to be able to supply foreign markets as
well. Tomato being the top 4 exported products every year has a huge potential. Here, the main sorts are
“Pink Paradise”, “Kanka Bandit”, “Tera-tron”, “Mojitos” and “Rally”. Cucumber, on the other hand, is highly
demanded just because of its high quality. Moreover, all the greeneries can be supplied by airplanes at its
Many types of nuts have been an irreplaceable part of the people here in Azerbaijan. Especially for hazelnut
Azerbaijan is located in the natural growing area and it is the top 4 exported products of every year. These all nuts
have local sorts unique for only Azerbaijan.
Azerbaijan has a long history of dried fruits. Our Association offers handmade and industrial dried fruits and
vegetables (especially dried greeneries). Handmade ones are made with the centuries long traditional
experience of local people (specific for persimmon). On the other hand, in an industrial way we mainly use rela-
tively new technology – cold wind drying systems. By this way, the product retains its all-natural ingredients
and color. This new system is almost applicable to almost any kind of fruits and vegetables. Shelf Life – 12
months Storage temperature – 18-25 degrees Celsius.
