Pistachio prices declined by Rs 5 per kg at the dryfruits market in the national capital today largely due to muted demand from retailers and stockists.
Adequate stocks position following increased arrivals from overseas markets also put pressure on pistachio prices.
Pistachio (hairati and peshawari) fell Rs 5 each to conclude at Rs 1,380-1,450 and Rs 1,520-1,620 per kg, respectively.
Traders said sluggish demand from retailers and stockists against increased arrivals, mainly led to the fall in pistachio prices.
