Exclusively Spanish clementines on German wholesale markets

Small citrus fruits
There was nothing available but Spanish clementines, whose presence has noticeably gone up. Beside Marisol, which was relatively cheap at €10 per 10 kg crate, Clemenrubi was also unloaded, for which one had to pay up to € 20 per 10 kg. Mandarins came mostly from South Africa; the products left nothing to be desired in terms of taste, so that the processing proceeded quickly. Satsumas stemmed primarily from Spain; Italian and Turkish rounded out the assortment. Availability has continuously increased in this segment as well. As a consequence of weak interest, emptying out the stores did not fully succeed. Even lowered prices could not avoid a build-up of inventory. Croatian productions cost € 11 per 10 kg wooden crate in Frankfurt.

Altogether, a calmer, but more consistent sales volume could be observed, which accelerated now and then leading up to the weekend.

Generally, the demand could be satisfied without difficulties. With regard to the prices, there were no serious changes.

Table grapes
Greek Thompson Seedless and Turkish Sultana stood at the spearhead of the offers. Altogether, interest has improved somewhat, which is why prices could be raised here and there.

The New Zealand imports evidently increased, while the Italian and Greek parties reduced. The quotations developed very differently.

Spanish fruit dominated the Turkish. Altogether, the prices remained at the level thus far, with the deliveries tuned to the friendly demand.

The supply was sufficiently adjusted to the accommodation facilities. Therefore, the quotations did not change as a general rule.

Domestic parties were in first place, Belgian followed. Altogether, supply expanded a little. Nevertheless, demand could not be fully covered.

Spain has replaced Germany in first place. Because of the increased availability, courses lowered. Especially the presence of Spanish products has massively increased.

The deliveries from Central Europe continued to decline. Belgian batches were ready beside the domestic and Dutch. However, the importance of Spanish offers steadily increased.

Dutch and Belgian deliveries dominated the marketing. The supply strongly increased and clearly towered above the interest. That is why it was not surprising that the traders had to successively keep reducing their prices.

The Netherlands characterized the business ahead of Spain and Turkey. The supply was enough to adequately satisfy the constant demand.

The presence of Spanish onions grew. Shipments of domestic household products strengthened, while Austrian offers declined in importance.
