The Chinese citrus market was strong between the Chinese Spring Festival [February 5th, 2019] and April. Baba tangerines and Orah tangerines maintained leading positions and Shatang oranges closely followed. The Shatang orange market did not look good at the end of last year. The overall sales volume declined, and the ability of Shatang oranges to "make money" weakened in comparison with last year. However, in comparison with regular fruits, the Shatang orange still does extremely well.
The production season of Baba tangerines is gradually coming to an end, but the flavor is still excellent. Consumers are not losing their enthusiasm for Baba tangerines. Recently, the price of Baba tangerines slightly increased because the yield per hectare slightly fell. However, this did not affect the sales volume at all. Market news shows that the overall sales volume of Baba tangerines increased more than threefold in comparison with last year.
Market conditions for Orah tangerines are similar. Orah tangerines were the most popular tangerines in the market between March and April. The overall sales volume of Orah tangerines increased twofold in comparison with last year. Many tangerine production areas enjoyed abundant harvests this year, so the overall price declined. This is one of the reasons that consumers are buying more tangerines this year.
