Today, [greenhouse] farms are offering these products at a price of UAH 12-15 (US$0.48-$0.60) per kilogram," the East Fruit analytical platform said on August 23. According to experts, the price hike is associated with a seasonal shortage of supply, while some farms have already begun harvesting the second crop rotation cucumbers. In addition, customer activity significantly increased ahead of the holiday weekend (August 24-26), which also contributed to higher prices of products.

Noteworthy, the limited supply of field grown products, among other things, contributed to the rise in price of greenhouse cucumbers," the report said. According to East Fruit, field cucumbers of low quality account for the major share of field grown product, which increases the interest of buyers in quality products from greenhouses.
