Italy: Good year for cauliflowers at Lusia fresh produce market

Cauliflowers are doing well at the Lusia fresh produce market. They arrive leafless and in 6-piece plastic crates.

Cauliflowers are available throughout the year, although the biggest quantities can be found in May, June, September, October and November (over 150 tons per month).

25% more volumes were sold in 2014 with respect to the previous year despite the fact that bad weather during the first part of the year compromised part of the crop.

Prices were also quite interesting, with an average price of €0.78/kg in 2014, i.e. 10% more than last year's average price. This was due to lively demand and the good quality of the produce.
