The price of sour cherries could double, compared last year due to spring droughts and high temperature fluctuations – the president of the the national horticultural and supplier department of the National Agricultural Chamber (NAK) told MTI on Monday.

Mártonffy Béla added that due to the large amount of sour cherries, the prices were low in 2018, but in some areas, 30-40, and sometimes 50 percent less will grow.

This year, 50-60 thousand tons of sour cherries can be expected, compared to last year’s 90-100 thousand tons of national crops – he recalled. (MTI)
