The prices of Chinese fruits recently showed a downward trend after continuous growth. However, the price is still almost 30% higher than around this time last year. The price of fruit will further drop in the next few months as many production areas begin to supply the Chinese market with large volumes of fruit.
Du Juan, data analyst at Yimoutian, explained that in comparison with one month ago the price of fruit recently showed a slight decline. However, the overall price of fruit is still much higher than last year because the production volumes of watermelons, apples, and lychee were much smaller this year and the prices therefore higher. The price of apples is now around 129% higher than last year. The price of watermelons in production areas is 26% higher than last year. The prices of plums, passion fruit, muskmelons, and peaches are all more than 30% higher than last year.
