"The market price of Chinese peaches has maintained a high position for several years now. However, the prospect of profit has attracted many farmers and the overall surface area devoted to peach plantation rapidly expanded. As a result of this development, market supply is now far higher than consumer demand. The prices of different peach varieties all show a downward trend, and that includes the honey peach." This is according to Mr. Long Gang of Hainan Natural Fruit Fragrance Agricultural Development Co., Ltd.
"Not only does the price of peaches drop, but the average price in the Chinese fruit market is falling as well. The prices of many different fruit varieties are all much lower than in previous years. Consumers have much more choice when purchasing fresh fruit. However, popular seasonal fruits such as apples and oranges enter the market in large volumes and they can be stored for quite some time, while the peaches easily spoil after a short period. If the peaches spend too much time in transport or storage, then the product quality severely declines."
"The peach variety we currently sell is the honey peach. The supply season will only last one more month. We only sell our peaches in Haikou, the capital of Hainan. The sales volume is not as good as in previous years, but we are satisfied with the product quality."
