"China: "Dali winter date production per hectare increased 30%"

"In the past few years, the average winter date price has fluctuated by around 5% from season to season, because of the increasing Dali winter date production area. This year, Dali has a production of 100 to 150 kilogram per hectare. That is an increase of 30% from last year," according to Ms. Zhang Juan, a winter date producer in Dali County, Shaanxi.

"Dali County in Shaanxi is a well-known Chinese winter date production region. Located close to the Yellow River, with sufficient rain and a dry climate, it is the ideal natural environment for winter dates. Furthermore, compared to other regions, the Dali dates enter the market one month earlier. The dates from greenhouses are ripe in July, and the others in August. The supply usually lasts until the end of September."

"In the early stage of the season, winter dates can be stored for around half a month. As the season progresses, however, they can only be stored for approximately seven days. Our winter dates are mainly sold through traditional sales channels to distributors and supermarkets in large cities in China. Smaller quantities are also sold through e-commerce platforms to coastal cities, where the consumption levels are relatively high. I hope that, with the assistance of the government, we will be able to start exporting our products, so that foreign consumers can also taste our special Dali winter dates."
