It also stated that Russia was their leading export partner for fruit & vegetables.

A total of over 31 thousand tons of fruits were exported from Uzbekistan in the first month of the current year. For comparison, in January 2016, the inflow of foreign currency from the export of fruit, vegetables, cucurbits and legumes totaled $20.7 million.

The bulk of the exports consisted of grapes, pomegranates, lemons, persimmons, apples, greens, cabbage, carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, beets, radishes, turnips, peanuts, and mung beans. Most of the orders were fulfilled within the framework of obligations under the contracts concluded during the First International Fruit and Vegetable Fair on 8-10 November 2016 in Tashkent.
