Uzbekistan: assortment of imported exotics and local fruits and berries continues to expand

EastFruit experts draw attention to the growing assortment of fruits on the shelves of supermarkets in the capital of Uzbekistan, the city of Tashkent. The growing income level of the population is forcing retailers to expand the range of both Uzbek products and imported exotic fruits.

We visited the Korzinka supermarket on June 2, 2023, and decided to show what we found on the shelves and at what prices the products are sold in the video. Under the video we will provide the full list of products with prices and our conclusions.

The wide range of sweet cherries, prices for which at retail level range from $1.3 US dollars per kg to $5.25 for those who prefer large-caliber fruits.

The assortment of berries is also growing, albeit rather slowly. Blueberries are still quite expensive because they are imported. Blueberries sell for an amazing price of $28 US dollars per kg, although at the same time Uzbekistan could well harvest and sell its own berries. By the way, it is a major progress as a couple of years ago prices for blueberries were US $40 per kg and higher. Raspberries, by the way, are also very expensive although quality is not very high.

The assortment of melons is quite wide, and watermelon is now the most affordable fruit in terms of price in Uzbekistan – prices start at 44 US cents per kg for the traditional type of watermelon. For a watermelon with yellow flesh, you will have to pay exactly 5 times more!

There are also many types of exotic fruits on the shelves. In particular, products such as pitaya (dragonfruit) are sold at $6.12 per kg, red guava at $14.90 and salak or snake fruit at $13.12 per kg.
