In pictures: Watermelons a summer steal at 200 dinars per kilo in Kurdistan
By Mohammed Shwani
Watermelons can be bought in Erbil's markets for 200-250 dinars ($0.17-0.21) per kilogram.
This is down from 650 dinars just 10 days ago.
Farmer blame the continued closure of the Erbil-Kirkuk road for an over-supply.
The sweltering heat means the sellers only have a limited time before the melons will rot.
