Raspberry season has started in Ukraine

The local raspberry peak sale season has started in Ukraine this week. The first batches of raspberries from the southern regions became available on the market more than a week ago, but prices were too high. To date, growers in almost all regions of the country have begun harvesting raspberries, which has increased the supply on the market and somewhat squashed the prices.

Current wholesale price for raspberries in the central, eastern and unoccupied southern regions ranges from 50 to 70 UAH/kg ($1.71-2.39/kg), which is 1.6 times lower on average than for the first wholesale lots of raspberries last year. Market analysts explain such a price difference by the rather early start of the raspberry season, as well as favorable weather conditions this spring. The peak season in the western and northern regions of Ukraine has not yet started, and prices for small batches of raspberries can be many times higher than in the southern regions.
