Tridge summary

The strawberry season has begun in Campania and Sicily, with the first batches of Sabrosa from Basilicata. However, the sales of oranges are low due to high temperatures. Demand for artichoke, lettuce, and aubergines is also low, leading to a drop in courgette prices. The Italian artichoke campaign is struggling due to insufficient rainfall. On the other hand, white cauliflowers are seeing high production and decreasing prices, while fennel from Southern Italy is experiencing a slight price increase. Lettuce prices are falling due to low demand, and Sicilian aubergines are losing market share due to increasing supply and stagnant demand. Pepper prices are on the rise, but still lower than last year, while tomato prices, especially for datterino and cherry tomatoes, are falling due to low demand and competition from cheaper Spanish products.
