Taiwanese Lunar New Year approaching
Fruit prices Taipei risen 20% compared with last yearAs the Lunar New Year holiday approaches, average fruit prices in Taipei are rising about 20% compared to last year. Average wholesale prices for dates, oranges and other winter fruits are higher compared to last year. Citing wholesalers, the reports said that this year’s fruit supply is apparently insufficient, so the closer it gets to the Lunar New Year, the pricier fruits will get.
Taiwannews.com reports how market vendors say that bananas have the largest discrepancy in prices as the average price for the fruit this year is about 30% higher than that of the same period last year. Guava is 26% more expensive and ponkan (a sweet citrus cultivar ) is 16% pricier.
