Recently, mainland China suspended the import of pineapples from Taiwan, which is undoubtedly very good news for growers in Xuwen, Guangdong.
It is reported that prices started at a high level from the beginning of this season. The average farm-gate price reached 2.5 yuan per half a kilo, and prices as high as 3 yuan can be seen. These are the highest purchase prices seen in recent years.
Xuwen, Guangdong is a top pineapple producer in China, producing 30% of pineapples in the country. Its good geographical location, rich soil, and abundant sunlight throughout the year are highly beneficial to the growth of this fruit. The product from this county is not only full in body but also sweet and delicious with outstanding quality.
In March, the new crop is entering the harvest season, and the peak is expected to arrive in April. Industry insiders say that the purchase price of high-quality fresh fruit with an average weight of over 750 grams can reach a price of 3 yuan per half a kilo; that of fruit weighing over 650 grams is 2.5 yuan per half a kilo.
It is reported that in order to best carry out sales this year, the county authorities launched a "Xuwen Pineapple" high-speed rail train initiative, in order to promote the product and expand the influence and sales in the Northwest, East, and Central China markets. The head of the Xuwen County Agriculture and Rural Bureau said that the next step is to bring pineapples on the train so that passengers can taste the sweet and delicious product and deepen their impression of it.
