Poonch /Shimla, Sept 25 (ANI): Apple trade in Jammu and Kashmir, which had hit a slump during the floods, restarted after the reconstruction of a major road which had been left damaged because of the heavy rainfall. The arterial Mughal Road in Kashmir, which connects the mountainous valley with the foothills of the state, was rendered inaccessible following landslides caused by the recent heavy rainfall but has now been reconstructed and thrown open to traffic. The worst flooding in over a century had hampered the trade of Kashmiri apple, which is known world over for its taste and juice. Kashmiri apples, whose price generally wavers around rupees 100 per kilogram, are now being sold for rupees 20 per kilogram. However, the slump in the Kashmiri apple trade gave a boost to the apples of Shimla in Himachal Pradesh, which are a major competitor for the Kashmiri ones.
