Representatives of Ukrainian greenhouses announced the new season of local greenhouse cucumbers will appear on the Ukrainian market next week, according to analysts of the EastFruit project. Ukrainian greenhouse producers said the new season could have begun at the end of January but there was a delay due to the sharp drop in average daily temperatures, which slowed the ripening of cucumbers in greenhouses.
Today, greenhouse cucumbers on the Ukrainian market are still imported products from Turkey. Prices for Turkish cucumbers are stable at 34-42 UAH/kg ($1.21-1.49/kg). When compared with the end of January last year, Turkish cucumbers in Ukraine were on average 42% more expensive than today.
It should be noted that last year, Ukrainian greenhouses at the new turnover of cucumbers also entered the market in early February, but prices for local greenhouse cucumbers were quite high at 70-75 UAH/kg ($2.49-2.66/kg). Let’s see if the greenhouses in Ukraine manage to reach the same high bar at the start of this season.
