The offer of the local cucumber was gradually increasing due to the fact that more and more combines started the season of selling the cucumber of a new turn

The first relatively large consignments of greenhouse cucumber from local households began to enter the Polish market only at the beginning of this month. Despite this, Polish producers are already forced to cut prices for these products, EastFruit project analysts said.

According to market operators, the supply of local cucumber was gradually increasing due to the fact that more and more combines began the season of selling a new turnover of cucumber. Additional pressure on prices was also exerted by the presence on the market of rather large volumes of cheaper imported products made in Spain.

Thus, the representatives of Polish greenhouse factories could not avoid lowering the prices of their products, and currently the Polish cucumber goes on sale at a price of $ 2.53-3.04 / kg, which is on average 7% cheaper than at the end of the last working weeks.

Meanwhile, sellers of imported products decided not to lower selling prices, since, according to them, Spanish cucumbers were in great demand among buyers than local ones. However, despite active demand, they were in no hurry to raise prices, fearing a slowdown in sales. As a result, Spanish cucumbers went on sale in the range of $ 1.66-2.30 / kg.

At the same time, it is worth noting that despite the reduction in prices, greenhouse cucumbers in Poland today cost an average of 1, 6 times more expensive than in mid-February 2019.
