Pistachio prices eased by Rs 5 per kg at the wholesale dry fruit market in the national capital Thursday largely due to subdued demand from retailers and stockists.
Adequate stocks position following increased arrivals from producing regions also put pressure on pistachio prices.
Pistachio (hairati and peshawari) fell Rs 5 each to settle at Rs 1,495-1,545 and Rs 1,595-1,670 per kg, respectively.
Traders said fall in demand from retailers and stockists against increased arrivals, mainly led to the fall in pistachio prices.
