- participation in the process of fruit extraction, enjoying freshly baked fruits and berries with your own hands

Tajikistan is one of the most picturesque places on the planet, endowed with unique nature and its gifts. Bright and juicy, delicious and healthy, and besides, so diverse — all this can be attributed to our fruits, which are in special demand not only among the local population, but also among foreign tourists. Anyone who has ever visited our republic and tasted our fruits always says that he has tasted many different fruits, but there are none like ours anywhere. The abundance of sweet black and white grapes, fragrant large apricots, red healthy pomegranates will never leave our guests indifferent. Therefore, tourists love Tajikistan, they are happy to visit our republic.

Fruits of Tajikistan are considered the most delicious in the world, environmentally friendly and healthy because of the abundant sunny days, clean mountain waters, fresh air, as well as favorable soil, which is located at an altitude of more than 1-2 km above sea level.


Fruits in bazaars (markets) Tajikistan can be found almost all year round. Early–ripening varieties of cherries and strawberries appear first on the shelves - their maturation begins in April-May. At the end of the last spring month, apples, cherries, and peaches ripen.

The greatest abundance of fruits is observed in summer. In the hot months, you can enjoy grapes, which are presented here in a very wide assortment, juicy pears of various varieties. Closer to autumn, pomegranates and prunes ripen. It is simply impossible to list exactly what fruits grow in Tajikistan at this time of year, for this you need to have a phenomenal memory and boundless patience.

The latest fruits arrive fresh on the shelves of the markets in October, some record holders from the point of view of frost resistance "hold out" until the first days of December. There are some fruits among which the taste is fully revealed only after a light frost hits.

It is worth noting that each fruit has its own homeland. The reason for the specialization of districts into specific fruits is weather conditions. It is these conditions that allow lovers of nature and fruits to visit Tajikistan at any time of the year (except frosty time) and enjoy delicious fruits and berries directly from gardens and plantations.
