Hainan is an important fruit and vegetable producer for the Chinese market during the winter season. Agricultural products have encountered numerous difficulties since the outbreak of the corona virus. More recently the markets and industries in important production areas in China have begun to recover, and Hainan has officially launched a policy to open up distribution channels. The fruit and vegetable export from Hainan is now returning to normal. The unmarketable conditions are gradually improving.
This is the time of year when mangoes enter the market. Their conditions are improving. One of the major production areas of mangoes is in Sanya on Hainan. This year's production volume is estimated to exceed 500 thousand tons. An industry specialist stated that the "Guifei mango" price increased by 0.5-0.8 yuan [0.07-0.11 USD] per 0.5 kg. The mango marketing channels rapidly recovered due to the hard work and effort of governments and traders. Sales in March are expected to compensate for financial loss in February.
In addition, the sales conditions of pineapples also seem to improve in March. The price of pineapples seems to be rising. The sales season normally continues until May, although the sales volume in May is relatively small. The price is expected to rise to 1.8-1.9 yuan [0.26-0.27 USD] in May.
