Melon Prices in the Alicante Province Crash Due to Overproduction

Melon prices have collapsed by 40 percent this year in the Alicante Province due to overproduction.

Yellow melons come in at a basic cost of 15 cents compared to 25 cents a year earlier, with the ASAJA farmers association saying that local producers are barely covering costs.

Competing regions like Castilla La Mancha have contributed to the problem, along with a reduced demand for melons from European countries.
