The season for djenkol beans, one of Myanmar’s most popular fruits, will start next month, and its opening market is expected to be good, according to the interviews.
At present, djenkol beans are still young and rare, and there are few consumers.
“From next month, djenkol beans will be plentiful. Current fruits are young, so there are only a few consumers. If the price is cheaper, there will be more consumers. In their season, we sell about 500 to 600 pieces of big fruits daily. Sometimes, all our stock is sold out. When it rains, djenkol beans are ripe, and we can sell about 1,000 pieces a day. We will start selling next month. With more supply, the price will drop more,” said a djenkol bean business owner in Yangon.
Djenkol beans, one of the most consumed fruits in Myanmar, are a perennial tree whose fruits can be harvested in about seven years. Some grow naturally, while others are grown on commercial plantations.
“Around Tawthalin month of Myanmar, the stock of djenkol beans is exhausted, and their sprouts enter the market. When Marian plum season ends, djenkol bean season begins,” he said. — Thit Taw/ZN/ED
