China: "Quality of Sanhong honey pomelos has improved significantly"

Last year, the overall sales performance of pomelos was not ideal, mainly due to oversupply. Moreover, the size of the fruit was too large for export markets, which led many farmers to have a large amount of unsold fruit.

This year, Pufa Agricultural Resources Co., Ltd. hopes to help pomelo farmers to sell their fruit through their sales channels. In addition, they also provide support for farmers in planting technologies, to improve the quality and yield of the fruit.

As Mo, General Manager of Pufa Agricultural Resources, said: “Compared to the total production of 5,000 tons last year, this year’s production has doubled, reaching about 10,500 tons. In addition, this year’s fruit sizes are also more uniform than in the previous season, and the volume of marketable fruit will increase. The reason for this improvement is that last year, farmers didn’t fully realize the importance of bagging in protecting the quality of fruit. With our professional guidance, they started to bag each fruit in the later stage, to avoid pesticide residues and blemishes.”


Mo also gave a professional analysis of the reasons for the sharp increase in production this year. On the one hand, the company's experts visited the orchards on a regular basis to teach plant management techniques to fruit farmers. On the other hand, pomelo comes into production after three years. Last year was the third year after the trees were planted and the first year of them coming into production. As the trees were young, there wasn’t a lot of fruit. This year is the second year of production. As the trees progress through the production cycle, they are now producing at full potential. Thanks to the combination of these two factors, this year's production has increased significantly, and the trees are now more mature. ”



“Our Sanhong honey pomelos are grown in Wuxuan County of Laibin City. The total planting area is about 16,000 mu, and they become ripe and available on the market every September. Each fruit weighs one to two kilos. They are fleshy and juicy, with a balanced sweet and tart taste. They become available just before the Mid-Autumn Festival, making them the best gift for this holiday. Last year, there was a lack of effective sales channels, which led to a lot of unsalable fruit. This year, we hope that with our efforts, we can provide a smooth market for the farmers.”
