In Russia there is an increase in demand for apple

The prices for an apple in Russia were compared with last year's in the conditions of production growth.
In the apple market in Russia, there is a revival of trade and purchasing activity this week, as evidenced by daily monitoring data. In addition, as industry experts note, the intensification of demand stimulates gardeners to raise prices for these fruits.
In particular, only since the beginning of the week the apple in the southern and central regions of Russia has risen in price by an average of 42%. As a result, currently the fruits of the early varieties of producers are not sold cheaper than 37 cents per kilogram. The offer of such an apple is extremely limited, since almost all farms have completed the season of its implementation. At the same time, prices for autumn apple are formed within 52-81 cents per kilogram, and some farmers even declare them at the level of 89 cents per kilogram. For comparison, at the end of the previous working week, transactions in this segment were 44 cents per kilogram.
At the moment, apple prices in the main manufacturing regions of Russia are formed in the same range as in late August a year earlier. Market analysts forecast an increase in the production of these fruits in the country. In particular, according to preliminary estimates of the World Association of Pears and Apples, the gross harvest of apples in Russia in the coming season will be 1.3 million tons, which is 18% more than last year. Recall that last year, according to the Association, Russian gardeners have harvested one of the worst harvests of apples in the last decade - just 1.1 million tons.
