Even today, farmers manage to load pears of the sort "Conference" at 41-49 cents per kilogram. In the same range, prices for the Favorotka pears are also formed, and they remain stable for the second week in a row.
It is worth noting that Polish producers are reducing prices even in conditions of abundant supply. Moreover, in the current season in Poland, a rather sharp increase in the gross harvest of pears is expected. According to preliminary forecasts of the World Association of Pears and Apples, in the season-2018/19 Polish farmers collect about 70 thousand tons of these fruits, which is 75% more than in the previous season, and 20% higher than the average for a five-year period.
At the same time, it should be added that Poland is not the leading producer of pears in the European Union: this year this country will have about 3% of the total gross harvest of these fruits in the European Union. Leaders are traditionally the Netherlands, Spain and Italy.
