Moldovan companies and private people have started to harvest the walnuts.
For some, the walnut business is a real money-making factory. In Moldova, the climate is perfect for cultivating walnuts, and the trees even grow along roads.
A kilogram of walnut kernel is about 150 lei ($7.7.) As the domestic demand is not so high, the Moldovan walnuts are largely exported.
The walnut orchards spread over 25,000 ha in Moldova.
