Georgi Buhalski

Abstract


In recent years there has been a great interest among manufacturers to conventional and organic production of walnuts. Currently Bulgarian market has over 500 walnut producers and about 30,000 acres of industrial walnut orchards. Suitable areas for growing walnuts in Bulgaria are Plovdiv, Pazardzhik, Stara Zagora, Haskovo, Shumen and Razgrad, as most industrial plants are in Stara Zagora, Plovdiv, Pleven and Haskovo. The market for walnuts in Europe is virtually limitless, since about 100 thousand tonnes per year are imported, mostly from the US. Walnuts growing is a profitable business and an excellent long term investment. The return of the investment depends mainly on the choice of locally relevant varieties.

Key words: walnut, growing, production
