Market prospect for "Xiangshan Red Beauty" oranges

This is the time when oranges ripen, and some of the early season varieties already gradually enter the market. "Xiangshan Red Beauty" is a new, upcoming orange variety.

Under the right management conditions, this variety has a production value of around 200 thousand yuan [28.8 thousand USD] per 0.07 hectare.

Orange orchard owners earned around 50-100 thousand yuan [7.21-14.41 thousand USD] per 0.07 hectare, while some earned as much as 200 thousand yuan [28.8 thousand USD] per 0.07 hectare, which is more than 10 times the average production value of orange orchards.

The overall surface area devoted to "Red Beauty" orange plantation in Zhejiang Province currently exceeds 1.3 thousand hectares with a production volume of 3 thousand tons.
