That could mean better prices for growers, he said. “It’s kind of like gasoline,” Kragie said. “When it’s $4 a gallon, you can’t believe it and then it drops to $3.79 and you think you’ve gotten a really good price because you have forgotten what gas prices were just a few years ago.

“I think the same kind of thing could happen with the figs. If the Chileans keep their prices up, then maybe consumers will get used to seeing (the higher prices), and we can get our pricing up off the floor.”

I have seen some pretty poor quality Calif Figs from time to time in the markets. And with some pretty high prices too. Everything depends on timing and demand. A Fig is a Fig !
