"Chinese markets for grapefruit and lemons are like day and night"

More and more domestic and overseas fruits will enter the Chinese market in large volumes as the weather gradually warms up. Consumers have an increasingly wide variety of fruit to choose from. The market conditions for different fruits are not the same. Competition is fierce. The markets for grapefruit and lemons are an example of this development.

Fresh South African grapefruit

Jiang Minghai of Shanghai Sea Fruit Trade Co., Ltd. provided an overview of the grapefruit and lemon markets: "South African grapefruit have been on the market for some time now, but the supply volume is still limited. South African grapefruit are expected to enter the Chinese market in large volumes in the second half of May. The price is then expected to come down. The current wholesale price shows serious fluctuation."

Fresh South African grapefruit

"What makes people happier is the product quality of grapefruit. The product quality of South African grapefruit in particular is quite good this year. We will have to wait and see how the market develops later in the season, but as the temperature rises, so does market demand."

Fresh lemons

"Lemon market conditions are far less positive than the grapefruit market. The main supply of lemons comes from Anyue, Sichuan. The market price did not show fluctuations for a long time, but according to our estimates the price will begin to increase in the coming month. When the market improves, we have sufficient fruit in storage to satisfy growing market demand."
