The German cucumber season is nearing its end. This is also becoming noticeable on the German wholesale markets. Daniel Schury is CEO of Franz Schmitt GmbH & Co. KG on the Munich wholesale market, and he explains: "The offer of German, Belgian and Dutch cucumbers is currently diminishing noticeably. The imported goods are increasingly present."

The cucumbers are currently being imported from Spain and Greece. however, the inflows from the Mediterranean are not too lush in terms of quantity. "The supply has currently reduced somewhat," says the wholesale trader. "The offering from Spain is not all that large yet, and the Greek offers still have a lot of room for improvement.

However, the reduced offer does not reduce the steady demand for cucumbers. "Demand has been good thus far," the CEO reports. "The prices also show a rising tendency."

This is confirmed by the current market- and price study from BLE (see tables below). Generally, a price increase can be made out of all size categories. Price decreases are only recognizable with large cucumbers.
