Dry fruit: In a mixed pattern of trading, cashew and walnut prices rose at the wholesale dry fruit market in the national capital during the week on fresh buying by stockists and retailers driven by domestic and export demand, while a few others remained weak owing to muted demand against the availability of stocks.
