More than 1.15 million tons of peach and nectarine were produced in Iran in the current crop year, indicating a 6.8% rise year-on-year.

“The provinces of Alborz, Mazandaran, Fars, Golestan, Hamedan, West Azarbaijan, Markazi, Qazvin, Chaharmahal-Bakhtiari and Kermanshah are the top 10 producers of peach and nectarine in Iran,” Shokrollah Hajivand, an official with the Ministry of Agriculture, said.
