Pistachio prices rose by Rs 5 per kg in the national capital today on the back of fresh buying support from retailers and stockists, triggered by marriage season.
Fall in supplies from overseas markets also supported the upside in prices.
Pistachio hairati and peshwari traded higher by Rs 5 to settle at Rs 1,000-1,120 and Rs 1,300-1,350 per kg, respectively.
Market analysts said increased demand from retailers and stockists, driven by marriage season against fall in supplies from overseas markets mainly pushed up pistachio prices on the wholesale dry fruit market here.
