In the southern regions, strawberries cost from 60 to 90 UAH / kg ($ 3.0-3.4). In the western regions, strawberries are currently being bought at farms at 50-70 UAH / kg ($ 1.9-2.6) at farms, and in wholesale markets it costs an average of 5-10 UAH / kg more expensive.

Blueberries remain very expensive. Now you can buy it on average at 300 UAH / kg ($ 11.1) in small wholesale, but the offer is growing rapidly, so there are already the first offers of berries of not the highest quality at a price of 200 UAH / kg. Two days ago, blueberries of Ukrainian origin were sold, as a rule, at 400 UAH / kg ($ 14.9).

There are already red currants and gooseberries in the wholesale markets. The prices for them are formed at approximately the same level – from 70 to 80 UAH / kg ($ 2.6-3.0) when sold in small wholesale and slightly cheaper on the condition of self-removal from the economy.

In some supermarkets, the retail price for honeysuckle has already dropped to 320 UAH / kg (39.9 UAH per 125 grams). However, this year there will most likely be few berries, and it is unlikely that the price will drop very much.

Cherry is usually sold at 50 UAH / kg ($ 1.9), although cherries with a diameter of more than 28 mm and with high quality parameters, as well as in good packaging, can be sold at 90 UAH / kg ($ 3.4).
