09/16/2020

To date, the Russian market mainly sells an apple of autumn varieties, which is unsuitable for storage.

Low demand for apples and an increase in the supply of these fruits of autumn varieties are forcing Russian gardeners to reduce selling prices for dessert apples, according to analysts of the APK-Inform: Vegetables and Fruits project.

So, at the moment, a quality apple goes on sale at a price of 40-70 rubles / kg ($ 0.53-0.93 / kg), which is on average 16% cheaper than at the end of the last working week.

It should be noted that today the market of the Russian Federation mainly sells an apple of autumn varieties, which is unsuitable for storage. Therefore, most of the gardeners have decided to slightly lower the prices for these fruits in order to boost the sales of apples.

Nevertheless, despite the decline in prices, apples on the Russian market are currently offered at a higher price than in the same period last year. For comparison, in the same period of September 2019, gardeners announced the prices for these fruits on average 20% lower than today. Industry experts explain this price trend by a decrease in the gross harvest of apples in the country.
