After a gap of more than 60 days, cardamom auctions resumed at Puttady on Thursday.

Being the first harvest, field fresh varieties moved up in the price range of ₹1,850-1,950 a kg, while export quality 8 mm capsules saw good demand with rates hovering at ₹2,400. There was a good movement for the present bulk because of its fancy colour, with prices in the range of ₹1600-1,700 kg, traders said.

The quantity offered was 16.2 tonnes and of this, Tamil Nadu dealers through their representatives in Kerala procured nearly six tonnes. Around 25-30 dealers from different parts of Kerala took part in the auctions.
