Prices of high-density apples from Kashmir witness sudden crash

Industry experts claim that premature harvesting and a bumper crop in Himachal Pradesh are the reasons for the huge decline of rates of high-density Kashmir apples in the country’s markets. If the bumper crop in Himachal is indeed the reason that the prices dropped, then Kashmiris will not want to convert too much of their land to cultivate newly introduced high-density apple varieties in the long run, as they will be harvested along with the Himachal apple.

Fruit growers claims the high-density varieties like Jeromine and King Roat saw good rates at the beginning of season, but once more high-density varieties started to be harvested, the prices dropped drastically. They say that much of the produce even remained unsold in local markets, which forced the traders to transport it to outside markets.
