Provincial Agriculture and Forestry Director Suat Parıldar, who examined the gardens in Şenköy village of Çınarcık district, described the Yalova aronia as the “24 carat gold” of the region.

Stating that 72.5 percent of Yalova’s agricultural lands are 5 decares or less, Parıldar explained, “We need to focus on crops with high added value per unit area. Aronia is one of crops we are focusing on. We are currently producing aronia on an area of ​​150 decares. The place we are currently in is also an organic certified aronia garden. We have an area of ​​90 decares of organic farming completed throughout the province. By the end of 2021, we have 160 decares of land. We aim to increase the aronia production area in Yalova to over 300 decares by establishing a new production area.”
