Almond prices edged higher by Rs 50 per 40 kg in lacklustre trade at the wholesale dry fruits market today on mild demand from retailers.
However, other dry fruits moved in a narrow range in limited deals and settled around previous levels.
Traders said some demand from retailers against restricted supplies from producing belts, mainly led to rise in almond and its kernel prices.
In the national capital, almond California rose by Rs 50 to Rs 11,450-16,650 per 40 kg, while its kernel edged up by Rs 2 to Rs 592-602 per kg.
Following are today's quotations (per 40 kgs):
