Parsley, dill, cilantro

According to EastFruit, the key news this week in the fresh greens market was the premature end of the season announced by the producers of these products from Georgia.

According to local market participants, for several reasons (devaluation of the Russian ruble, difficulties with harvesting and logistics), farmers who previously focused on exporting fresh herbs to Russia were forced to end the season and switch to planting tomatoes and cucumbers.

As a result, the prices of parsley and cilantro in Georgia at the end of the week they rose on average to $ 0.63 / kg. Nevertheless, the average price of dill still fell slightly to $ 0.47 / kg.
