Fruit from Thailand is popular in China because the variety is so great that there is a flavor for everyone's taste. The supply of imported fruit from the USA, Australia, Chile, and Thailand is growing every day since winter. The peak retail period came earlier than last year. Thailand secured the largest share of the fruit import market in China.
The price of mangosteen is lower than last year. The weather in Thailand was excellent this year as was the harvest of mangosteen. In addition, the surface area devoted to mangosteen plantation increased this year, which means that the overall production volume is larger this year, and the price decreased. The peak of the harvest season of Thai fruit comes after May and the price will likely fall even further then.
