The first Brazilian Thompson Seedless, which costed € 19.50 per 4.5 kg crate, were already available in Frankfurt. Altogether, the availability expanded. Because interest also improved, the traders could often increase their demands, at least when the organoleptic properties were convincing, which was often the case.
