"Chinese consumers have begun to pay more attention to healthy foods in the last few years. Seedless pomegranates are now quite popular in the Chinese market. The overall surface area devoted to the plantation of different pomegranate varieties therefore continues to expand." This is according to Mr. Liu Huan of Huili County Qingchun Hong Ecological Agriculture Co., Ltd.
Workers select seedless pomegranates
"We have a seedless pomegranate plantation that covers an area of more than 133 hectares. We mainly plant the Qingchun Hong Tunisian seedless pomegranate. We have an annual production volume of 3-4 million kg. Our plantation is divided over two locations in Sichuan and Henan. The production seasons last from August to October and October to November. Our production volume is larger than last year. That is mainly because we expanded our plantations."
Seedless pomegranate processing factory
"Based on current conditions, we expect the market to be somewhat slow and weak this year. The price of pomegranates will drop by 30% in comparison with last year."
"We sell our pomegranates online and offline in wholesale markets and supermarkets in cities across the country. We package our pomegranates in larger 15-kg boxes as well as smaller gift boxes."
