Waxberries being grown in Qingtian county - East China's Zhejiang province - were sold for more than 10 yuan ($1.55) in European markets, according to China Central Television. One local waxberry grower said that since 2019, they have sold waxberries to Singapore, Spain, the United States and other countries, but export orders this year have been better than ever.
Since June 1, when the first batches were sent abroad, Qingtian county has exported about 16.5 tons of waxberries this year, said Zhu Weihao, an official at Lishui customs.
As reported on ecns.cn¸ waxberries are sold by the kilogram in China, but they are considered a unique and high-end fruit in international markets. The major international consumers are overseas Chinese and their friends.
