Offers on peaches from Spain are limited with only small volumes at the moment as it is still early in the season. The prices are high as per the norm for the start of the season.
“Arrivals of Spanish peaches through our partners in Perpignan are fairly limited at the moment,” said Ed Bowers from Burbank. “Bigger volumes from Spain will start to filter through in the next two weeks or so. We haven’t actually traded any yet as the prices are too dear for our wholesale clients. Prices need to drop and find a level before our customers are happy to take the risk of bringing the fruit. Early season is always difficult as prices often fall as fruit is travelling to the UK.”
“Though there are Spanish peaches being offered there is also Moroccan Peach being offered. However there is only small fruit being offered, which is not to our customers’ taste. The early season Peach from Spain is coming from the Seville region, which produces small volumes compared to main regions of Murcia and Llerida. Once the Murcia region starts towards the end of May then there will be more volumes arriving with more attractive prices.”
