In winters, the demand for dried fruit increases in the Indian Market. The dry fruit market in India, as well as the world, is seasonal and stable.  Peanut, almond, walnut, chestnuts have very good demand. You can eat these dried fruits as it is or even use them in many recipes. 

There are many dried fruits common to consumers, such as chestnuts, walnuts, almonds, pumpkin seeds, etc. Among them, nuts are most well known. Over the years, some products of dried fruit nuts in the Chinese market have relied to some extent on imports, mainly from Chile, Thailand, Vietnam and other countries. 

“Compared with fresh fruits and vegetables, the market supply of dried fruits is quite stable, mainly due to the fact that, firstly, dried fruits can be supplied continuously throughout the year, and the seasonal differentiation is relatively insignificant. Secondly, the shelf life of dried fruits is longer. Again, the price of dried fruit is less sensitive to fluctuations in the big market.” Mr. Zhou Fang, a dry fruit trader told.

He said, “Our dried fruit is processed by an external processing factory. The products are mainly sold to wholesale markets and supermarkets in domestic first- and second-tier cities. At this stage, considering the logistics and other cost factors, we have not opened the export market. In the future, when the domestic sales market is mature, we will consider selling dried fruits overseas."
