"Production volume of early-season varieties declined by more than 30%"

"Panzhihua mangos enter Chinese market in large volumes"

Panzhihua mangos entered the Chinese market two weeks ago. The production volume declined by 30% compared to last year because weather conditions in production areas were less than ideal. That is also why the price is somewhat higher now. Manager Tan, the spokesperson for Panzhihua Fruit Development Co., Ltd., recently talked about conditions in production areas as well as current market trends.

Manager Tan first introduced conditions in the mango plantations of Panzhihua. "This unseasonal snow fell when the mango flowers opened up and many of the plants were damaged by frost. The main Keitt mango plantations in Panzhihua are located at lower altitudes and the flowers were badly damaged by frost. The production volume significantly declined. Mango plantations at higher altitudes generally grow late-season mango varieties, and the flowers were not yet open when the snow fell. That is why their product quality is better and their production volume largely unaffected," said manager Tan. "And in the areas where fewer flowers turned into fruit, the mangos grow bigger. Mangos that were less than half a kilo are now more than a kilo."

"Apart from the influence of poor weather conditions, Panzhihua plantations have always enjoyed excellent plantation management. Farmers all work their own land. Even though production declined, farmers still carried out their tasks on schedule, including fertilization, weed removal, and adding protective pouches to the fruit. That is why the product quality is just as excellent as in previous years. Farmers base their expectations on the current harvest, but always seek to improve next year's harvest through dedicated plantation management," said manager Tan.

Guangxi mangos recently entered the domestic market. Yunnan is halfway through their mango supply season. And Keitt mangos from Panzhihua have only just entered the market in large volumes. The supply seasons only slightly overlap, which gives suppliers an advantage.

"Market supply of the popular Keitt mangos is limited because the production volume declined by more than 30%, which means that the price is up. The purchase price of Keitt mangos was around 3 yuan [0.45 USD] per 0.5 kg in previous years, but this year the purchase price is around 4.5 yuan [0.67 USD] per 0.5 kg. When other mango varieties enter the market in large volumes, then the price will come down a bit," said manager Tan.

"Panzhihua grows a variety of mangos, but the product quality is always great. Panzhihua mangos are popular throughout the country. In addition to large-scale supermarkets and wholesale markets, we also sell our mangos via direct online livestreams, e-commerce platforms, and community purchasing channels. Every year, as soon as the mangos enter the market, visiting traders flock to Panzhihua."

Panzhihua mangos sell well in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, and other first-tier cities, and they are also popular abroad in Germany, the Netherlands, Canada, Russia, Singapore, and Malaysia. Panzhihua mangos are exported to more than 10 countries. "This season the price of mangos is relatively low in Southeast Asia, which has an impact on our mango export. The export volume of Panzhihua mangos will likely be smaller this year than last year."

Panzhihua Fruit Development Co., Ltd. was established in May of 2021. "We are cultivating the 'Panzhihua fruit' brand. We hope to establish a standard for mangos, loquat, and pomegranate, and turn Panzhihua into a regional trademark for top-quality fruit. We hope to set up strict product quality control, excellent selection, and a system that connects growers and retailers. We also hope to arrange for integrated services for storage, distribution, and market information exchange. We hope to bring the fruit growers of Panzhihua together and create an excellent, comprehensive supply chain, which allows Panzhihua fruit to be recognized and traced to the original plantation. This will help develop the agricultural industry in Panzhihua and stimulate rural revival," explained manager Tan.
