Tu B'Shvat has arrived, a holiday for the trees - but not only the planters go with "Ron in the heart and in the hand", as the song that is most identified with the holiday states. One of the oldest consumer myths in the Israeli tradition: Are dried fruits really getting more expensive towards Tu B'Shvat?

"Not the same customer movement"
Why is there no increase in sales of dried fruit? What is the favorite dried fruit for children and what for adults? Love dried coconut cubes? Expect a shortage of product as well as a shortage of other dried exotic products, ask why? Shai
, one of the owners of the Bustan chain that specializes in selling all types of dried fruit with all the answers:
Tu B'Shvat is Rosh Hashanah for the year of the fruit of the tree in Eretz Israel and as a result some of the celebrations are of course related to fruit.
The owner of the Bustan chain, which specializes in selling all types of dried fruit, says that
: "For several years now there has been no increase in the purchase of dried fruit before Tu B'Shvat. This is no longer the same customer movement we were used to in years past. "He adds:" If until a few years ago we took care to fill the special dried fruit stock we sell online before Tu Bishvat, today there is a daily demand for dried fruit and the purchase is completely regular and regular. Bustanai
further explains that other factors that influence consumer behavior when they come to buy dried fruit also indicate the growing awareness of consuming a healthy longevity, that is, in parallel with the purchase of the familiar and "regular" dried fruits, dates, raisins. , Leather, and apricots, has developed an industry of importing exotic natural dried fruits such as: pineapple, figs, mango, strawberry. And every dried fruit we know with sugar and preservatives has a natural sugar-free equivalent.
Children's favorite dried fruits (in descending order): apricot, banana chips, candied pineapple, sugared strawberry and in adults (in descending order): dates, apricots, figs, plums, natural pineapple.
Bustanai concludes that: "This year due to the corona we will feel a shortage of various types of dried fruits such as: coconut cubes and other exotic products due to the high price and due to the slowness of shipments coming from abroad.
And as for the price, almost all the prices of imported dried fruits have risen between 20% -30% and are still very volatile.
"Even with the dried fruit we will feel the price increase."
