Market participants believe that the excitement around garden strawberries is associated with its very low market supply, although the season of greenhouse strawberries in the south has already begun

On the Russian market in the segment of strawberry gardening, there is an increase in selling prices, analysts of the APK-Inform: Vegetables and Fruits project report. The primary reason for the rise in price of market operators called unstable and low-volume supplies of domestic berries due to worsening weather conditions in the southern regions of the country.

So, today the price of local strawberry garden is announced in the range of 190-300 rubles / kg ($ 2.60-4.10 / kg), which is on average 15% more than at the beginning of this month.

Market participants believe that the excitement around garden strawberries is associated with its very low market supply, although the season of greenhouse strawberries in the south has already begun. Farmers in some areas in the southern regions report the death of large strawberry plantations from severe frosts in April.

Farmers are going to harvest strawberries in open fields on the 20th of May, but no one predicts a price reduction. Producers expect that strawberries will be sold more expensive throughout the season than last year. Also, most producers say that the bulk of the berries they have already contracted by wholesale companies and retail chains.

At the same time, it is worth adding that the prices for strawberry in the Russian market at the moment are still on average 15% lower than in the same period last year.
