Erik-Jan Thur, Marni Fruit:

“Sales of peaches and nectarines are plodding on; paraguayos and platerinas doing slightly better”

Spanish stone fruit is currently widely available on the market. “You can notice suppliers are trying to spread their supply to realise the best prices, but because of the fairly large supply, we’re still facing minimum prices,” says Erik-Jan Thur of Marni Fruit.

“The sales of peaches and nectarines are calmly plodding on, because everyone has plenty available. Prices are around 4 euro (for four kilos) for the best sizes, and around 2.75-3 euro for smaller sizes. The prices of packed peaches (10x1 kilo) are between 7.50 and 8.50 euro, and for nectarines between 8 and 9 euro. It would be better if prices were just a little bit higher, but it’s almost impossible to ask for higher prices,” Erik-Jan continues.

Paraguayos and platerinas are selling slightly better according to the importer, although this isn’t resulting in higher prices right away. “We also have Stanley plums available now, and these will soon be followed by the purple President plums,” says Erik-Jan, who expects a fair supply of Spanish stone fruit until late September.
