Recent developments from Navi Mumbai's APMC market state that more than 300 vehicles have arrived at the location with tonnes of fruits. Reports state that the prices of fruits have also come down as the demand for the same has reduced over the last few months. Furthermore, vendors have also seen a lack of customers towards the end of 2020.

According to the information received, the stock of oranges that has arrived in the market has increased to 5,000 quintals. A similar pattern has been observed as 1,000 quintals of apples, 3,000 quintals of watermelons, 1,200 quintals of pineapples and 450 quintals of grapes have also reached the market.

Experts also state that fruit prices have currently reduced due to increased inflow in the market. Last year, heavy rains had caused severe damage to many crops due to which the prices had skyrocketed during the festive season. However, with ample availability of fruits and fewer buyers, the prices have reduced significantly. 

Vendors have stated that oranges are arriving in the entire market due to the high inflow at the premises. This had led to a sharp decrease in the price as oranges are being sold at INR 20 to 25 per kg. 

Following are the prices of fruits (per kg) sold at the market:

  • Apples - INR 80 to 90
  • Pomegranate - INR 75 to 150
  • Oranges - INR 20 to 25
  • Grapes - INR 60 to 80
  • Pineapple - INR 24 to 30
  • Papaya - INR 14 to 16
  • Watermelon - IN 5 to 7
  • Figs - INR 60 to 75
  • Chiku - INR 20 to 25
