    nope, or at least not yet:

    “Los plátanos duraron unos meses a 13 y 14 pesos, y la semana pasada llegaron a 16, no en el detallista de aquí, sino en el camión, lo que quiere decir que posiblemente, en este mercado, pronosticamos que el plátano pueda llegar a 18 y hasta a 20 pesos en el camión, lo que significa que ahora al consumidor le puede estar llegando a 25”, dijo el presidente de la Federación de Comerciantes del Mercado Nuevo, Luis Taveras.
    Además, el dirigente comercial vaticinó que si la situación sigue como va, pues sencillamente los consumidores tendrán que pagar los plátanos hasta a RD$30 la unidad (...)

    We just paid $22 pesos each yesterday at Bravo on their Tuesday sale for platano maduro.

    Looks like that may be the regular price without the discount, I hate the way the stores now show any discount at the bottom of the receipt and not always itemized.

    A year back one could buy a good branch of green plantains for about 200rd on the roadside in the Cibao. It therefore seems inconceivable that those same farmers will be selling that branch now for close on 1000 pesos and makes me think the middlemen are taking a big cut exploiting the drought at a time when transport costs should have dropped.

    Would be interesting to hear of anybody buying a branch at roadside and the cost.

    Plantains are in the $20 range at Bravo and at some colmados. They are significantly lower at my favorite Vegetalera on Av. Argentina.

    In Los Hospedajes, they are less than 1/2 of the Bravo or Colmado price.

    And they are "stems" or bunches, NOT "branches" .....JEJEJE

    Yesterday, Wednesday. offered a large bunch around 20 plantains for 450 pesos - this was from one of the roadside stalls outside Maimon.
