Products and Popularity[edit]

Semirom is known for its high quality apple trees and production nationally and internationally. The high altitude of 2,000 meters above sea level gives apples produced in Semirom region their characteristically sweet taste, aroma and color.[4] Semirom apple had been target of international research funds to protect and excel its gardens.[5]

Semirom Riot[edit]

Unrest started on August 16, 2003, after a decision by the Isfahan Governor General's Office to incorporate the Vardasht district of Semirom into the municipality of Dehaqan provoked the ire of the people of Vardasht. The people staged a demonstration to protest the decision, but the protests later turned violent. Eight people were reportedly killed in the violence, including two police officers, and some 150 were injured.[6][7] Later Hosseini, the governor of Isfahan at the time, in an interview with Shargh newspaper denied any involvement in ordering police to confront the people, and said the number of killed was four.[8]
