Prices for Idared apples dropped to price level of industrial apples in Poland

Since Russia imposed an embargo on fruits and vegetable imports from Poland (and the EU), the sales of Idared apples have become more complex. This variety can only be sold at a good price in  seasons with a lower production. Only then and at the end of such a season, do prices approach the prices of other varieties.

Prices for all apple varieties in Poland have fallen dramatically in the current season. As a result, the prices for Idared apples turned out to be almost at the lowest level. To date, wholesale prices for apples of this variety are announced at the level of 0.40-0.50 PLN/kg ($0.10-0.12/kg). However, real sales of large batches of Idared apples are made even at 0.30 PLN/kg ($0.07/kg) – this is the price level of industrial apples.

This means that selling Idared apples for Polish growers has become a real problem, because of an abundance of other apple varieties on the market, the demand for which is traditionally higher. Prices for almost all apple varieties are very low this season. Nevertheless, many growers do not want to store this variety for too long, since its cost will not cover storage costs.
