Northern Bangladesh sweet orange growers dominate local fruit market

Sweet orange grown in Bangladesh’ northern districts of Thakurgaon, Panchagarh and Dinajpur are dominating the local fruit market this season thanks to increased demand and reasonable prices. Fruit traders prefer to sell the locally produced sweet orange (Citrus sinensis), commonly known as ‘Malta’ in Bangladesh, as they can collect it as per their requirements directly from various orchards in the region.

Maltas are being sold for between Tk 90 to Tk 120 per kg, depending on the size and variety while the imported ones cost Tk 220 per kg in local markets. Consumers are seemingly more interested in the locally grown Maltas rather than the imported ones, as the local variety comes at reasonable prices and are preservative free.
