Pomegranate becomes cheaper
Tribune News Service

CHANDIGARH, Aug 14—Even as the prices of certain varieties of mango still available in the market have been soaring, pomegranate has become cheaper in the local market in the past four days.

A survey of the local markets revealed that though there has been a change in the prices of some commonly used fruit, by and large the market has witnessed no major fluctuation in fruit prices.

A kg of 'chausa' mango, which is the only variety now available, and which was priced at Rs 35 a kg four days ago was quoted today between Rs 40 and Rs 50 a kg. Its wholesale price has gone up from Rs 200 to Rs 250 per 7 kg during this period.

'Kupi', another mango variety, was available at Rs 30 a kg. Last week, it was sold at Rs 20 to Rs 25 a kg. According to traders, the prices of the fruit are going up since the arrivals have been shrinking in the local market as the crop was almost over in Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra.

Plum could be purchased at its old price of Rs 40 a kg in retail and for Rs 250 per 7 kg pack in the wholesale market. The same was the case with 'baggugoshas' as these could be had for Rs 40 a kg in retail and for Rs 400 per 16-17 kg pack in the wholesale market.

Guava, which is a comparatively new entrant in the market, was sold at Rs 20 a kg in retail and for Rs 12 a kg in the wholesale market. Though, the wholesale price of banana is coming down due to enhanced arrivals, there has been no change in its retail price and it was still sold for Rs 20 for a dozen. The wholesale price has come down from Rs 140 to Rs 100-120 per 100 pieces.

The price of good quality pomegranate is also coming down. A kg of 'kandhari' variety , priced at Rs 100 last week, was quoted today Rs 80 a kg. Its wholesale price has come down from Rs 350 to Rs 290 per 4 kg pack. Mausambi, too, has become cheaper during this period due to better arrivals from Maharashtra. A dozen of the fruit, priced at Rs 50-60 last week, could be purchased today for Rs 40. The wholesale price has come down from Rs 150 to Rs 120 per 4 dozen pieces.

Though the royal variety of apple was priced between Rs 40 and Rs 50 a kg, the golden variety was sold for Rs 25 a kg. One could purchase a piece of pineapple for Rs 40 in retail and for Rs 30 in the wholesale market.
