Italy: Carrots with leaves did well at the Lusia fresh produce market

The volumes of carrots with leaves sold at the Lusia fresh produce market boomed in 2014 - 1,800 tons between January and September. The figure is expected to reach 2,400 before the end of the year.

The managers of the market said that "carrots are processed in 8/10 piece bunches packed in plastic boxes. It is one of the few profitable products for both the productive and sales sector."

"Growers have a good opinion of this vegetable as it costs very little to produce and is perfectly suitable for our soil."

Average prices were of €0.91 - 0.95/kg, with peaks of over €1.30/kg.

It seems then that these carrots did pretty well. Here is a summary per month:
