The price of Baba tangerines in the fruit and vegetable markets and supermarkets in Leshan, Sichuan, is lower than it had been in recent years. Consumers are quite pleased with the price of Baba tangerines, which is between 2 and 5 yuan [0.30-0.75 USD], but farmers are desperate. Some have slowed down harvesting their tangerines.
The purchase price of Baba tangerines is relatively low this year. Luo Xiaoyan of the Leshan City Bureau for Agriculture said: "It must be said that the citrus market in Leshan City is practically saturated. The price reflects this development. It is safe to say that the price will not reach the same heights as last year, but will stay at affordable levels."
