Increased arrivals from producing belts also put pressure on cashew prices.
Cashew kernel (No 180, 210, 240 and 230) prices fell by Rs 5 each to settle at Rs 695-755, Rs 675-695, Rs 595-615 and Rs 515-565 per kg, respectively.
Marketmen said fall in demand against adequate stocks mainly led to a fall in cashew kernel prices in the wholesale dry fruit market here.
The following are today's quotations (per 40 kg): Almond (California) Rs 15,200 Almond (Gurbandi-new) Rs 7,300-8,000; Almond (Girdhi) Rs 3,500-4,200; Abjosh Afghani Rs 8,000-20,000.
