China: Orah mandarin production surged this year

In recent years, the sugar orange has been slowly overtaken by the Orah mandarin. After the difficulty selling sugar oranges last year, this change has become more marked and many people say that the myth of the sugar orange will be shattered as more fruit farmers have begun to plant Orah mandarins.

First of all, they give a greater yield. For example, in the case of three-year-old fruit trees, the yield per mu can reach 8,000 jin. As for the price, it has been relatively stable in recent years and has remained at around 6 yuan/kg. From the analysis of planting benefits, we can know that the Orah mandarin is more promising.

In addition, it has always been regarded as a "citrus aristocrat", which means it sells well in high-end markets. It also comes to the market in  January-April, when there is less competition and during the annual Spring Festival it is regarded as gift of the top grade. The market development potential is huge.

The sugar orange seems to slowly enter the ranks of ordinary fruit, without any obvious advantage, so most people believe that the Orah mandarin has a more promising future.
