With 13 lac 35 thousand tons of Apple production, Pakistan is world’s 10th largest country. World’s production is 50 Lac tons in which Belgium, France, Italy, America and Chilly are prominent.
Baluchistan is the key contributor of Apple production in Pakistan while KPK stands on second number with contributing 25 percent of national Apple growth. Apple production normally starts in December and January but few farmers also seed in monsoon weather. In Pakistan Tong and Clift drafting are the most practicable among farmers from which they can get fruit on 20 to 30 centimeter of earth level. If planting in monsoons, apples are planted by T-blooding technique, which is the best technique for this season. For apple production, rain is the main element. If it does not rain, the tree would not provide the fruit that is why apple-producing areas are not plane lands but its gardens are located in mountain region. After Baluchistan and KPK, Punjab province also contributes in Apple’s production as its upper part Potohar and Murree also produce Apples. Azad Kashmir is also a renowned place of apple growth and Kashmir’s apple is used as term because of its taste.
