BLE Market Report KW 36/19:

'Domestic goods determined events with numerous plum varieties'

Domestic goods determined the market with numerous varieties: In particular, there were Hauszwetschgen, Top, Cacaks Fruchtbar and Auerbacher. Also, First Elenas arrived. The presence of Fellenberg, Ortenauer and Presenta increased somewhat, that of Hanita, Cacak's Schöne and Buhler Frühzwetschge narrowed noticeably.

In addition to domestic offers, the Eastern European Stanley was readily available as well. These were cheaper than the German fruits and therefore usually generated a friendly demand. Spanish, Italian and French lots completed the range of goods in smaller quantities.

Overall, demand could be met without difficulty. Meanwhile, sales were not satisfying everywhere. Hamburg and Cologne marketers had to lower their prices in order to improve sales options. Only in Munich did the Bosnian Stanley become more expensive as a result of limited deliveries. There Polish Top five met only a limited demand due to what was really an unsatisfactory taste.
