Kaya Koyu Bag Plantations
Haven't you all ever wondered where all those plastic bags come from? You probably think that they're made in factories, but actually we grow them in plantations out here in Turkey. One of the most famous plantations is right here in the Kaya Valley.

The plastic bags grow in layers, like skins on an onion, and when the outer skin goes blue, the fruit is ready to pick. In the factories, the fruit is dried and then each layer is peeled off to form a complete bag slightly smaller than the one before. Then they are graded and packed together, and the natural fine fibre helps them to nest together. Turkish plastic bags lead the world production because of the climate and the excellent growing conditions. The tree is often grown as a companion plant with pomegranate and is a member of the same family as the spaghetti shrub which is grown commercially in Italy.
