At the same time, many raspberry producers believe that the price of these berries will continue to grow. They argue that raspberries are a thermophilic culture, and from the end of August to the beginning of September, Poland experienced wonderful sunny weather, which contributed to the rapid ripening of these berries. Now it has become sharply colder, and forecasters predict a further decrease in average daily temperatures.

Such a sudden cold snap is a shock for this culture. Raspberry yields can drop dramatically due to adverse weather conditions. This will automatically raise the wholesale raspberry prices to a higher level. At the same time, some gardeners are already announcing the price of this berry at the level of 30 zlotys per kilogram ($ 7.94 / kg).
