BLE report week 41:

Sweet peppers: Dutch and Spanish offers predominated

In the sweet pepper department, Dutch and Spanish offerings predominated. Overall availability expanded and was sufficient to meet demand. Sales had been limited in some places, partly as a result of the holidays, the BLE stated.

Apples
Local offerings dominated the scene: Elstar, Jonagold and Boskoop formed the basis of the offerings. Business was steady, without particular highlights.

Pears
Italian deliveries dominated the scene. Overall, availability had apparently dropped. As demand had dropped as well, traders rarely had cause to adjust their previous prices.

Table grapes
Italian Italia, Crimson Seedless, and Michele Palieri were at the top of the range. Turkish Sultana played an important role, especially in Munich and Cologne.

Plums
The season ended on a very unspectacular note. Deliveries were noticeably reduced. The condition of the fruits also dropped off somewhat. Demand was generally rather subdued.

Lemons
The presence of South African and Argentine imports was limited, while the importance of Spanish and Turkish offerings increased.

Bananas
As a rule, supply and demand were sufficiently balanced. As a result, traders rarely had cause to modify their previous prices.

Cauliflower
Local offers apparently prevailed. Demand was not particularly strong as a result of the nice weather and was easily satisfied.

Lettuce
In the case of lettuce, in addition to Belgian and domestic products, Italian products were now also becoming available. However, these still left something to be desired in terms of quality.

Cucumbers
Spanish cucumbers outweighed domestic offerings. The season for domestic products was slowly approaching the home stretch, and in some places, the quality of these vegetables left something to be desired.

Tomatoes
Dutch, Belgian, Turkish, and Polish goods formed the basis of the range. The range was relatively broad, and the customers could choose freely between high quality and expensive or cheaper offers.
