Almeria eggplant prices plunged in November

The price of eggplant in November has recorded a sharp decline. According to data from Hortoinfo, in weeks 45, 46 and 47, the product has yielded an average price of € 0.32 / kg. This is 59% lower than the price obtained in the same period of 2019, when it amounted to € 0.73 / kg, and 75% lower than the € 1.26 / kg of those same weeks in 2016.

In these three weeks of November, the long-type eggplant has been sold at the Almería auctions at an average price of € 0.32 / kg; € 0.26 / kg in week 47 and for € 0.35 / kg in weeks 46 and 45.

In the same period of 2019, the average price of long eggplant was € 0.73 / kg, trading at € 1.2 / kg in week 47 of 2019, at € 0.73 / kg in week 46 and at € 0.25 / kg in week 45.

The differences are much greater if we go five seasons back. In November 2016, the average price of long eggplant was 1.87 € / kg (€ 0.26 / kg in 2020) in week 47, € 1.13 / kg in week 46 (€ 0.35 / kg in the same week in 2020) and € 0.78 / kg in week 45 (€ 0.35 / kg in the same week of 2020). The average price of the long eggplant sold at auctions in weeks 47, 46 and 45 in 2016 was therefore € 1.26 / kg.
