Myanmar watermelons increase in price due to high demand from China

The combination of a high-quality watermelon crop and increased demand from China has raised prices for watermelons above those in October at the fruit wholesale market in Muse 105-mile trading camp.

“As it is the season for harvesting in Myanmar and local watermelon is of a good quality, the price is increasing and a tonne of watermelon costs more than 1,200 yuan (USD $180.72),” said Sai Min Thu Naing from Khwa Nyo fruit wholesale at Muse 105-mile trading camp.

Beginning from early November, a tonne of watermelon cost 2600 yuan to 3000 yuan, with low-grade watermelon going for below 200 yuan per tonne.

1 Chinese Yuan = 0.15 US Dollar
