After a seven-year hiatus, exports of pomegranates will resume as of late September, said the deputy manager of Fruit Exporters and Importers’ Union. “In the last seven years, pomegranate trees were repeatedly hit by cold snaps and dried up to the extent that we couldn’t export the fruit. They were not even enough to meet domestic needs,” ISNA quoted Sadreddin Niavarani as saying. Now pomegranates grown in Iran are enough to be exported to South Korea and Malaysia, he added.
