The price of fruits in Bulgaria could go up by 40% in July, as a result of the torrential rains and floods that hit much of the country, experts warn.

“It is natural for me to compensate my low yields with higher prices”, one fruit grower commented.

There is also lingering danger of crop diseases from the high moisture and floods.

Up to a 30% price increase can be expected for cucumbers, onions, peppers, strawberries, apricots, and cherries. Tomatoes remain the most sold fruit, and its price is unchanged, due to the fact that it is grown in greeneries.
