Pistachio slides on low demand

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Pistachio prices declined by Rs 5 per kg in an otherwise steady wholesale dry fruits market today on subdued demand from retailers.

However, other dry fruits settled at previous levels after trading in a tight range in scattered deals.

Traders said subdued demand from retailers mainly led to the fall in pistachio prices.

In the national capital, Pistachio Irani, Hairati and Peshawari weakened by Rs 5 each at Rs 1,245-1,345, Rs 1,375-1,445 and Rs 1,495-1,520 per kg, respectively.

Following are today's quotations (per 40 kg):

Almond (California) Rs 22,800, Almond (Gurbandi-new) Rs 8,200-8,300; Almond (Girdhi) Rs 6,200-6,300; Abjosh Afghani Rs 15,000-25,000.

Almond Kernel (California-new) Rs 790-810 per kg, Almond Kernel (Gurbandi-new) Rs 650-740 per kg.
