After a long stagnation in Moldova, the price of a low-quality walnut kernel has slightly risen

Updated Feb 22, 2023
Last week in Moldova, the minimum wholesale price for a walnut kernel increased by 13%, from 65 to 70 lei/kg ($3.74/kg).

And this is the price level of the bulk of transactions for the purchase and sale of a walnut kernel, so to speak - of ordinary quality (a mixed variety, a medium-sized or slightly darkened varietal kernel). The maximum price level for a high-quality kernel - about 75 lei / kg ($4 / kg) - has not changed, according to EastFruit.
Previously, the price of the walnut kernel on the Moldovan market rose for a short period of time in mid-December. At that time, export traders slightly (on average by the same 5 lei/kg as last week) raised purchase prices for a quality core, hoping for an increase in pre-Easter deliveries of goods to the European Union.
