One of the growers said, "We had a very good harvest due to timely rainfall and we are expecting a good rate this year. Cherry harvesting provides a lot of scope for employment."
Cherry is mostly grown at a higher altitude in Jammu and Kashmir in locations like Nishat, Harwan, Dara and Kangan.
Speaking to ANI, Horticulture Officer Saima said, "This year, the climate has been good and that has led to a great production of cherry fruit. There has been an increase of 10 to 20 per cent in the crop as compared to last year because of favourable climatic conditions. The quality this year is much better as compared to last year."
