4. Apples with a good price-quality ratio sell well (benefit). China has 1.4 billion people. The majority of them look for a bargain when they buy apples. Not only do they pay attention to quality, but they also look for a suitable price. Only then do they buy.

5. Apples with a small production volume sell well (rarity is valued). The overall market right now has an apple supply that exceeds demand, but locally the apples with a limited production volume sell especially well.

6. Specialty apples sell well (distinction). The Chinese market is huge. It requires variety. It needs a hundred varieties to sell to a hundred customers. The key for a company is to have their apples stand out.
