Walnut kernel prices shot up by Rs 45 per kg in an otherwise tight range in the local dry fruits market on Saturday on strong demand, driven by festive season.
However, other dry fruits continued to trade in a tight range in limited deals and settled around previous levels.
Traders said strong demand supported by festive season mainly pushed up walnut kernel prices.
In the national capital, walnut kernel prices shot up by Rs 45 to Rs 400-600 per kg.
