About : 

  • The apple (foreign apple), representative fruit of our country, was cultivated for the first time in 1875 when the Japanese government distributed all over the country the saplings of the apple trees to be grown on trial. The then Government intended to promote the cultivation of the foreign fruit for the purpose to increase industry and production. Since then 100 years have passed. Now with the land area under cultivation being 60,000 hectares throughout the country a little less than 1,000,000 tons of apples are produced. Of this quantity more than 10% is processed into juice, jam and so forth.
