Orange prices increased exponentially

The price of a kilo of imported oranges has increased to Rs.1,990, fruit importers said.

They said the prices of fruits including oranges have to be increased due to the increase in import costs and taxes. 
A few months ago, three imported oranges were sold at a price between Rs.100 and 200.
Imported oranges are the most sold orange variety in the Sri Lankan market due to the export of Sri Lankan oranges.
