Southern Hemishere citrus fruits enter Chinese market

After the second vacation week in China, both Shanghai and Guangzhou fruit imports continue to show little activity. The imported fruit variety relies manly on citrus fruits produced in the Southern Hemisphere. Last week, large amounts of citrus fruits from South Africa entered the Chinese market. In addition, large numbers of Chinese grown fruits also began to hit the market, resulting in an over supply of apples and citrus fruits.

Last week, the Chinese market welcomed the first batch of South Minnie Royal cherries. The cherries have a market price of 700 yuan per 2.5 kilo.
America plays an important role in terms of the import of fresh grapes to China; this is due to their production of a different variety of grapes. The amount of grapes arriving in China is relatively steady. Among lasts weeks arrivals in China was a large amount of Royal Autumn. As a result the Royal Autumn market prices dropped, but its quality remained perfect. The common price for Royal Autumn is 270-280 yuan per 9 kilo.

The prices of Red Globe grapes stayed the same as last week. Due to a few exterior appearance and texture flaws, the selling price of the Red Globe is falling below the above-mentioned 10-15 yuan. Newly arrived Red Globe grapes and stocked fruit stabilized the supply inventory, however the amount was small.

In addition, many green seedless grapes are available. Besides the Thompson variety, Autumn King and Pristine are also on the market and have the same market price. The majority of high quality seedless grapes, as Thompson and Autumn King, have a price range of 230 - 240 yuan per 9 kilo. The selling price of a variety of lesser quality than Pristine is 200 - 210 yuan. The price range of Scarlet Royal is 200 - 240 yuan and the price of the Crissy variety lies between 260 to 280 yuan.
