Tridge summary

Turkey is experiencing a significant drop in the export prices of nectarines and peaches, reaching $0.85 and $0.75 respectively, due to an oversupply in the market. This price decrease has been rapid, leading to peaches being sold cheaper than apples, a situation that is concerning for producers in Uzbekistan and Georgia, who rely heavily on peach exports and anticipate a bountiful harvest in 2024.

In Hungary, the price of domestic peaches is expected to match that of apples by the end of July, with Spanish peaches currently being sold at a higher price.
