Price of Chinese lemons higher than last year because the production volume declined

Tongnan in Chongqing is located at 30 degrees north and the average annual temperature is 17.9℃. The soil is acidic and drains well. The area is one of the three most famous lemon production areas together with California in the USA and Sicily in Italy. This is where the Huida lemons come from. "We are located in Tongnan, Chongqing. Our orchard covers an area of 667 hectares. We mainly produce Eureka lemons. This year the weather conditions were not great, so our production volume declined by 30%. That is why the current lemon price is around 30%-35% higher than last year." This is according to Mr. Wang, Director of Sales at Huida Lemon Science and Technology Group.

The Eureka lemon originally came from California in the USA. This is one of the most popular lemons on the international market. The Eureka lemon is a beautiful golden color and rich in nutrients. Compared to other lemons on the market, the Eureka lemon is an early-season lemon with a huge production volume. The trees are short with a broad crown. The trees blossom and bear fruit more than once a year, primarily in spring and summer. And this lemon variety has a high resistance against disease.

The outbreak of Covid-19 in the beginning of 2020 created a difficult market for fruit import and export, especially in terms of distribution and manual labor. According to Mr. Wang, "there are several reasons why export suffered last year including the rising shipping cost and the appreciation of the Chinese yuan, which raised the cost price of export products. This development reduces the competitive power of Chinese products in the international market. Despite these developments, our export volume did not decline, but expanded instead. This is the result of exceptional product quality and a strong brand image."

In the future, Huida plans to intensify cooperation in Sichuan and Chongqing and construct the largest lemon processing facility in the country there.
