Dried fruit prices stable

This article was originally published in Foodnews

AS RAMADAN begins, Indian dried fruit sellers have reported that prices have not been hiked for the festival season. Dried fruits are often consumed after fasting for their nutritive value and long shelf life. Nearly half of the dried fruits sold during this period are raisins, dates, prunes, figs, apricots, peaches, apples and pears. "Dates, badam, pista, figs and apricots are the favourites of the season," Ramjith P, owner of Eswari Plaza, told Kerala's City Journal. "We have dates costing INR120-INR340 (USD2.70-7.65) and apricots at INR280. But, people do not bother about the prices as these are inevitable during the fasting days," he said.
