Fruit price has increased since the begining of the Ramadan. Among the fruits, pineapple is at the top of price list.

The price of the fruit enriched with Vitamin A, C, calcium, potassium and phosphorus, has increased three times amid Ramadan.

Fruit traders said this is not season of pineapples. They are selling pineapples in advance. As a result, the price of the fruit rises. The pineapples price may fall in the coming days when the supply of the fruit will be adequate.

Retailers are selling small pineapple at Tk 30-35 per piece which was Tk 10-15 per piece earliar. Medium size pineapple is being sold at Tk 60-70 which was Tk 30-40 before Ramadan.
