The Dragon Boat Festival is coming up, and the preparations for melons and fruits are busy. In the market, the mangosteen that is imported from the market is particularly eye-catching. Most of the mangosteens in the domestic market are imported, mainly from Thailand and Indonesia.
Thai mangosteen has always been labeled as high-quality, and the local climatic conditions are really suitable for mangosteen growth. Thai mangosteen is large in size, has excellent taste, and has a strong tropical flavor, which is very recognizable to consumers in China. According to statistics, from January to May this year, the total transaction volume of mangosteen in the market increased by 219.19% year-on-year, and the average price was 40.5 RMB/kg, a year-on-year decrease of 25.54%.
Now is the peak period for the listing of Thai mangosteen, and mangosteens transported from sea and land have entered the market one after another. This year, Thailand's mangosteens have had a bumper harvest. Compared with last year, the output has increased by about 38%. The reason is that the output was damaged due to bad weather and quality problems last year. This year, the mangosteen was not affected by external factors, so the output was higher. In addition, this year, mangosteen has enhanced the land transportation to speed up the supply, the market supply is sufficient, and the market wholesale price is as low as 22 RMB/kg.
The price of mangosteen in the market is mainly based on the difference in size and quality level. Generally, a box of mangosteen is 8.5kg. The price of 2A and 3A is 180-190 RMB/box, the price of 4A and 5A is 190-230 RMB/box, and the price of 6A can be sold for 250 RMB/box.
Now that the pandemic situation in China has basically stabilized, the logistics have become gradually smoother, and the market is gradually opening up, which means that the imported mangosteen will return to its previous sales situation, plus there is no competition from Vietnam mangosteens this year. Thailand mangosteens have the market to themselves and that is bound to usher in good sales.
