Regular seasonal fruits are now available in supermarkets in Uzbekistan. The Korzinka and Makro supermarket chains announced the start of sales of new crop grapes, pears and figs on June 3 and 4.
The early Chillaki grape variety became available in supermarkets in the capital of Uzbekistan almost at the same time as last year, but at an average price one third cheaper than in 2021. On June 3-4, 2022, one by one, the Korzinka and Makro chains announced the start of sales of early Chillaki grapes in their stores in the capital of Uzbekistan. Prices range from 10 399 to 12 790 UZS per 100 grams, i.e. from 103 990 to 127 900 UZS/kg (from 9.5 to 11.6 $/kg).
On June 3-4, 2022, early pears became available in the Korzinka and Makro stores in the capital at retail prices ranging from 61 990 to 79 990 UZS/kg (from 5.6 to 7.3 $/kg). This season, early pears appeared in retail at about the same time as last year, with only a few days difference and at prices corresponding to last year’s levels.
Unlike new crop grapes and pears, early figs hit retail stores this season about a week earlier than last year and cost 8% more than in 2021.
