Price is stable

First Hainan fragrant pineapples of the season enter the Chinese market

In Hainan, the new harvest season of fragrant pineapples has officially begun. The fragrant pineapples are a variety of the Tainong no. 11 pineapple. The supply season is expected to last until June. The fragrant pineapple has three advantages over other pineapple varieties: first, the fragrance of this pineapple is sweet as perfume. Second, the fragrant pineapple looks beautiful. Third, the fragrant pineapple can be kept in storage for a long time and does not easily spoil.

As in previous years, most Hainan pineapple farmers still prefer to produce the Jinzuan no. 17. The sales conditions of Hainan pineapples are great this year. The price is clearly higher than last year. "I think that the high price of Hainan pineapples is the result of an import prohibition on Taiwanese pineapples. However, that influence is not as great as it may seem. There are other reasons. First, the climate in Hainan is well suited for pineapple production. Second, the Jinzuan pineapple is a market favorite. Its price is high and stable. The price of fragrant pineapples is more or less the same as last year." This is according to Mr. Wang Zhiqiang of Yongxing E-commerce Charity Center.

The pineapple is a tropical fruit, so pineapple plantations in China are distributed among the relatively hot provinces of Guangdong, Hainan, Guangxi, Fujian, and Yunnan. Current market supply primarily consists of Xuwen pineapples from Hainan and Guangdong. The pineapples from these two provinces are more or less the same in terms of flavor and product quality. Their main difference is the supply period.

"We sell pineapples under our own brand 'Hainan Farm Flavor'. We sell both through traditional retail channels and e-commerce platforms. Our fragrant pineapples are mostly sold in the wholesale markets and supermarkets of Jiangsu, Zhejiang, and Shanghai. As for the size of the pineapples, there seems to be an equal amount of large and small pineapples this year," said Mr. Wang Zhiqiang.
