According to bean traders, chickpeas are trading well at fair prices in the Mandalay market before the Tazaungdaing festival. U Soe Win Myint, the owner of Soe Win Myint Commodity Depot in Mandalay, mentioned that the price of chickpeas was K7,200-K7,500 per viss a few days ago, and now it is K5,800 per viss.
“Chickpeas are a favorite among Myanmar people. They are nutritious, with a delicious taste. Myanmar people make many snacks of chickpeas. Currently, they are not only sold for the local market but also for the foreign market due to good trading at fair prices. There is a high demand in India,” he added.
Chickpeas are primarily grown as a winter crop in the upper regions of Myanmar and to a lesser extent in the areas around Hinthada and Bago. There are two varieties of chickpeas such as Bamar chickpea, V2, V7, 929 and so on. — Min Htet Aung (Mandalay Sub-printing House)/TRKM
