Sources said that gardening is more than 3500 years old in this ancient land. The favorable soil and climatic conditions of the autonomous republic allow the cultivation of high-quality fruits with excellent flavor and delicacy. 

It is noted in the writings of historian travelers who lived in the XV century, that the tasty and delicious fruit varieties in Nakhchivan are nowhere in the world.  The fruits grown here are fresh and dry, and in addition to the domestic market, they find themselves buyers in foreign countries.

Since the beginning of the XIX century fruit-growing entered a wide phase in this ancient land. The establishment of conservation plants for the processing of fruit-vegetable products in the 70-80s of the last century caused to begin a new development stage in fruit-growing.

During the past period a lot of work has been done in this field, new fruit gardens have been established.
