BEIJING. There is hardly any trade on the Chinese pumpkin seed market, but this is not unusual for the summer months. Traders are hoping for higher domestic demand in July.

Slight price declines - with one exception

There is hardly any movement on the Chinese pumpkin seed market at the moment, but this is not unusual for the summer months. Demand is very weak as most buyers have already stocked up for the rest of the year and are waiting for the new crop to arrive. Export prices are holding steady with a slight downward trend and are currently at USD 3,715/mt CFR Hamburg for GWS kernels, grade A. Only for Shine Skins, grade AA, a slight price increase of USD 5.00/mt has been observed.
