Nene And The Apricots

As with many of the villages around Malatya, the most important export in Bekiruşağı is apricots. Both dried and fresh, these apricots make their way to open air markets in towns throughout Turkey.

Here, Ayşe Pektaş shows off some of this year’s harvest, dried in the sun on the back porch of the house where she lives with her son’s family.
