The price of good fruit has been rising all the way, and no one cares about ordinary apples

China: This year may see the most polarized apple market

Previously, industry insiders had predicted that the stock of apples from last year would, coupled with the economic downturn, prove to be a drag on the market this year. The merchants who bought apples last year paid full compensation, so this year would definitely see the lowest purchase price in recent years, and the number of merchants will also decrease significantly. But the facts are just the opposite. There are many merchants and they are rushing to get good-quality products. Prices in Qingyang and northern Shaanxi are also getting higher What is the reason why the apple market is still favored by customers this year?

First of all, this year's total number of high-quality apples was low and the coloring of apples was the worst in recent memory. This directly led to the opening of orders for late-ripening apples in 2021 in the northwest production area after the rain during National Day. The Gansu production area is one of the highest producing areas in the country, with an average altitude of more than 1,500 meters and a large temperature difference between day and night. The apples there were bright and hard.

In addition, the main plantings in Gansu are mainly red Fuji. The coloring is obviously better than the stripe-type fruits. This is also the main reason for the earlier purchases that happened in Gansu.

Secondly, when the apples were taken out of the bags on September 20th, the National Day, parts of Luochuan, Fuxian, Shaanxi, and Qixia, Shandong suffered hail disasters. Although the impact was not significant, it directly disrupted the purchasing plans of the merchants. Two of the best apple-producing areas suffered hail during the apple ripening season. It was also one of the reasons that led to the popularity of apples in Jingning, Gansu.

Thirdly, the quality of the apples was poor and there are many problems. At this time in previous years, apples would have already entered the mid-to-late stage with a large number of purchases, but this year buying has just begun. The late harvest of apples directly leads to shorter storage periods in cold storage. In addition, according to the merchants, there was a lot of rain this autumn, which may lead to a large number of various problems, such as mildew, happening next year, after the storage of these apples.

This year's apple harvest time is generally more than 10 days later than in previous years. The climate is getting colder and colder, and the problem of not being able to color has become one of the biggest issues. If growers want to keep the storage going for a longer time, then they had better harvest earlier, but that leads to problems with coloring. The drought in the summer and the excessive rainfall in the autumn and have caused many problems with small apples. This is also the biggest problem for apples this year.
