PTI New Delhi | Updated on May 07, 2011


Cardamom prices fell up to Rs 20 per kg in the national capital today owing to weak local and export demand amid adequate stocks.

Cardamom brown-jhundiwali and kanchicut prices declined by Rs 20 to conclude at Rs 980-1,000 and Rs 1,100-1,250 per quintal, respectively.

ardamom small varieties such as chitridar, colour robin, bold and extra bold prices also fell up to Rs 20 to settle at Rs 830-880, Rs 890-910, Rs 900-910 and Rs 1,050-1,080 per kg, respectively.

Market analysts said weak local and export demand amid adequate stocks mainly pulled down cardamom prices at the wholesale kirana market here.

Following are the quotations in Rs per quintal:

Ajwain 17,500-23,000, black pepper common 27,500-27,800, betelnut (kg) 110-120, cardamom brown-Jhundiwali (kg) 980-1,000, and cardamom brown-Kanchicut (kg) 1,100-1,250.

Cardamom small (kg): Chitridar 830-880, cardamom (colour robin) 890-910, cardamom bold 900-910, cardamom extra (bold) 1,050-1,080 and cloves (kg) 480-530.
