Banca Transilvania put up the foreign exchange on Friday in…cherries, as an irony for the higher price of cherries this time of the year. Cherries are considered luxury products.
The foreign exchange displayed by the above-mentioned bank reads that a USD dollar is rated for two cherries, while an Euro costs two cherries and a half. On the other hand, one can hardly afford a cherry for a Krona (SEK).
Imported cherries have hit the Romanian markets early this month, for prices reaching RON 120 per kilo. Agriculture experts say such high prices represent pure speculation.
