“The increase in the cost of fruit baskets mainly due to higher prices for apples and pears. The rise in prices of these fruits failed to compensate for sagging grape prices,” – said the head of analytical Department Tatiana Getman.

The expert also noted that the prices of exotic fruits and citrus almost unchanged, although in connection with the strengthening of the hryvnia expected reduction in prices for some goods.

In addition, the growth rate of the national currency could not affect the growth of prices of some imported fruit. The cost of some items increased by 2-5%.
