Life in rural Kyrgyzstan: Leilek resident shares how he saved lemons in his greenhouse during frosts

AKIPRESS.COM - Inomjan Nabijanov from the village of Internatsional, Batken region, is engaged in lemon cultivation.

Currently, the wholesale price of lemons is 220-230 soms per 1 kilogram.

"On a 6-acre plot of land in my yard, I built a greenhouse and planted lemons. It has been about 5-6 years since then," said Nabijanov.

He noted that with proper care, one lemon bush can yield up to 150 kilograms of harvest.

"I imported lemon seedlings in 2017-2018 from Tajikistan, from the Korgon-Tobo area near Dushanbe. My son studies in the capital of the neighboring country under Kyrgyzstan's quota. He suggested growing these lemons. They have a unique taste and color, and they are highly productive. Each seedling cost me 450 soms. Now, I sell lemon seedlings myself, priced from 800 to 1000 soms depending on the size. This year, I sold over 800 kilograms of harvest. There are still lemons ripening. I plan to harvest up to 5-6 tons," shared Inomjan.

He added that last year, lemons in many regions were damaged by frost.

"I installed a special device to blow warm air into the greenhouse. It's a stove I bought in Bishkek for 150,000 soms. It consumes up to 5 tons of coal per winter. Warm air circulates, heating the greenhouse. This is how I managed to save my lemons," he explained.
