We have a friend in the wholesale fruit business. He sells literally hundreds of millions of pounds of fruit every year. His forecast for fruit prices:

Due to over planting, blueberry prices will drop this coming summer. Finally.

Raspberry prices will sky rocket. Probably strawberry prices also. In fact, our friend believes that you will soon discover that there will be no raspberries for the kosher market at all.

In general, all food prices are rising (and quite fast at that!), and our source believes that the trend will continue long into the summer fruit season.

But at least we can eat blueberries!
