"Finger potato fills market gap in the northern region in winter"
The Xinxiang Finger Potato is a new type of sweet potato that has just been developed in recent years. It is very flavorful which distinguishes it from the traditional sweet potato. Small in size, high in quality, full of nutrition and colorful are the main features of the Xinxiang Finger Potato.
"Since it went on the market, the popularity of finger potato has increased year by year. In view of the satisfying sales situation earlier, we have expanded the planting area this year. The current market price has increased by about 40% compared with the same period of last year," according to Mr. Peng Guohua of Zhanjiang Dingsheng Agricultural Technology Co., Ltd.
"The sharp increase in price is not only due to the unique advantages of the variety itself, but also to the location of our production area. Our production area is located in Naomao Village, Wushi Town, Leizhou City, Zhanjiang, Guangdong Province. The biggest advantage of the production area is that we grow it in winter. There is basically no fresh potato market in the northern market in winter, which provides a good selling opportunity for our fresh potatoes."
"The company has a planting base with a total area of 2,800 mu. Among them, the planting base of Naomao covers an area of about 1,300 mu. The main variety is Xinxiang Finger Potato. The cultivation process of our sweet potato base adopts a water-and-dry rotation model. We also plant them in batches to achieve an annual supply. Because the growth cycle of finger potatoes is short, the planting base only uses organic fertilizer so the potato is completely free of gluten. "
"At this stage, our finger potato is mainly sold to Hangzhou, Shanghai, Guangdong and other regions under the private label 'Dingfu Fuping' through the traditional sales model and e-commerce platform. In the future, we hope to expand our market in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangdong to seek export opportunities."
