China: The price of premium apples may set a new record

Previously, two major apple-producing areas in Luochuan and Fuxian, Yan'an, Shaanxi suffered severe hail disasters. Suddenly, hail broke out and hit the apples still hanging on the trees one by one. At present, the apples in the Yan'an area have developed and it is almost time to bag apples for fruit coloring. At this time, the apples on the trees were smashed by hail, and the loss was very heavy.

Yan'an in Shaanxi Province has always been the main apple-producing area in northwestern China, and Luochuan apples are a famous brand among apples. According to last year’s price, the purchase price of Luochuan apples of the same size as this year should be able to sell for 6 RMB/kg. However, after the hail disaster this year, these apples would be basically worthless if they were damaged by the hail. One kilogram can be sold for 0.4-0.6RMB, even so, no one may buy it.

Up to now, the affected area of apple cultivation in Fuxian and Luochuan has not been counted, and the local insurance mechanism has been activated. According to some reports, the damage in the two counties is still very serious, and a large number of apples have been smashed. The hail disaster has caused great losses to the local apple production.

The output of apples in the entire apple production area in Yan'an is about 4 million tons, the output of Luochuan apples is about 900,000 tons, and the output of Fuxian apples is about 560,000 tons. This time, the Yan'an hail disaster mainly occurred in Luochuan and Fu County, and the affected apples were at most 1.46 million tons. In the eastern core production area, the total output of Yantai apples is 5.75 million tons, most of which are late-ripening Red Fuji apples.

China’s total apple production last year reached 42.4 million tons. On the whole, the affected area has a small impact on the output of apples. But this does not mean that it has little impact on prices. The impact of the hail disaster this time on the price of apples must be much higher than that of previous waves. The price of high-quality apples may once again break new heights.
