Hungary melon crop 15-20% under forecast

Hungary's melon crop is likely to reach 200,000 tons this summer, 15%-20% less than earlier expected, according to experts, Béla Martonffy, managing director of Hungarian fruit and vegetable growers association FruitVeB, said on Friday.

FruitVeB members are getting between HUF 25 and 35 per kilogram for their melons, Mártonffy said. Retail prices are between HUF 90 and HUF 150. About 60% of Hungary's melon crop is exported, mainly to the Czech Republic and Poland. (MTI-ECONEWS)
