Great quality and low prices for Moldovan apples at season’s end

The quality of apples improved somewhat in supermarket chains in the capital of Chisinau in May. Along with the varietals Granny Smith, Golden Delicious, Gala, Braeburn, the quality of which has never been satisfactory before, even the variety labeled simply as “red apples” looks amazingly fresh for this time of year, sorted by caliber, shape and undamaged.

Apple prices in the capital’s supermarkets have remained almost unchanged for about 5 weeks. Depending on the positioning of the chain format and product variety, they have stabilized in the range of 11-14 MDL/kg ($0.61-0.78/kg).

That is, apples were and remain the cheapest fruits, their prices being several times lower than, for example, for pears, bananas and mandarins, and also many times lower than for early cherries, apricots and strawberries. Given the fairly good quality of apples, according to some supermarket employees, “the last window of opportunity may suddenly open for apples with chain retailers at the end of the season, they may become the preferred fruits for some categories of buyers for a short time.”
