The price of seasonal fruits and vegetables is soaring! Discover the prices

Algerians complain about the relentless rise in the cost of food products on the market. In fact, for several months, the prices of food and goods in general have not ceased to rise while the standard of living and the purchasing power of households are gradually decreasing.

This price increase has also reached seasonal fruits and vegetables.

In fact, recently, the prices of tomatoes, avocado, onions, potatoes and even cauliflower have risen considerably.

What are the seasonal fruits and vegetables during the Algerian spring?

Spring in Algeria extends mainly over 3 months, namely, the month of April, the month of May and the month of June. Fruits and vegetables during these months are almost the same, including, on the one hand, for vegetables: artichoke, cauliflower, eggplant, zucchini, asparagus, potato, onion, lettuce, sorrel, beetroot, cucumber, bell pepper, green beans, and many more.

And on the other hand, seasonal fruits include: banana, avocado, lemon, strawberry, cherry, kiwi, melon, watermelon, tomato, apricot, fig, etc.
