Two pallets of New Zealand cherries also arrived in Canton with a one-way plane ticket. They are of regular quality and sell swiftly on the market as they go for 470 RMB. On December 15, 10 new containers of cherries arrive by sea with 9 containers still remaining from before. Judging from the current market reaction, the quality of the cherries coming from the Santa Teresa were only of mediocre quality. The sales climate is bad and the price keeps going down. Second and third-ranked wholesale markets also sell the cherries at low speed and the pricing is chaotic as they are sold for 200 RMB to 400 RMB depending on the district. On the evening of December 15, more than a 100 containers had already been brought back to the harbour, with a vast majority still having the fruits inside them. It is estimated that from the afternoon of December 16 until the morning of December 17, a lot more cherries will arrive on the market.
The sales speed of other varieties is average. The Red Globe grapes from Peru have sales problems. The wholesale markets with smart operations only sell one or two pallets every day at a low speed. The situation of the blueberries is the same as usual, both in terms of taste and of overall sales speed.
