Eugenia stem sales surge amid summer heat

The long-lasting Eugenia stem (Thabyay) sale has soared in this hot summer, according to Eugenia growers.
“We distribute Eugenia stems across the country, including Yangon and Mandalay, but we exclude areas such as Rakhine, which can’t be reached directly from Nay Pyi Taw. In Anya (central Myanmar), such as Pakokku, Kyaukpadaung, NyaungU, Chauk and Magway, the Eugenia has been sold well. It is the best seller in Pyay and Shwetaung,” Ma Yati Moe Oo, Eugenia grower from Chaungsauk village, Pobbathiri township in Nay Pyi Taw told the Global New Light of Myanmar (GNLM).
Despite a slight increase in price, there is no sharp difference.
“Eugenia stem sale has been pretty fine in summer. It has been better in summer than in February and March. Recently, the price has gone up slightly but not much differed,” she said.
Depending on size and variety, Eugenia stem prices range from a minimum of K100 to K3,000 to a maximum per one, according to Nay Pyi Taw Eugenia growers. It is expected that the Eugenia stem trade will continue better without a decline in demand.
Among the many flowers that are used for offerings to Buddha, the Eugenia stem is more durable than others, which is why it is one of the best-selling flowers in Myanmar. Eugenia stems can last three months by changing water, and even low-grade varieties can last at least two weeks. — Thit Taw/ZS
