On September 17th, “Guigang, Guangxi - an Authentic Place of Origin” campaign under the framework of Alibaba Harvest Festival was launched. More than 20 tons of passion fruit from Guigang was sold out within one hour. The Guigang Municipal Government and Alibaba announced that they would jointly promote 100,000 mu grown with passion fruit in this region to achieve standardized planting and scaled supply chain and move online systematically.
Guigang is located in the southeast of Guangxi, with an average annual temperature of 21.5 degrees and annual average days of rainfall of 166 days. This region, with 70% of the land rich in selenium, is considered the most suitable place for growing passion fruit. Although this year is the first year that passion fruit from Guigang officially “went online” on Alibaba, within the three months starting from June 18th, 150 tons of passion fruit from Guigang have been sold on the platforms of Ali Taoxiangtian and Tmall.
