Climate change threatens cherry harvest in Manisa, Turkey

Many of Manisa's famous cherry trees remain barren and fruitless in the Aegean region due to inadequate precipitation. The cherry trees are also being hit hard by global warming. Still, producers from Sancaklıbozköy are making their final preparations for the harvest that will take place in about a month.

Every year, farmers send the best cherries to tables around the world by taking care of both their trees and the soil. But this year, although the trees are decorated with white flowers, they are struggling to produce fruit due to the lack of winter precipitation. Depending mainly on their harvests, the situation has led to hard times for the farmers in the region. With some harvests completely ruined due to the drought, locals have turned to alternative products such as olives, apricots and figs to turn a profit.
