Myanmar’s fresh chilli pepper will fetch a good price when the Chinese market cannot supply fresh chilli pepper to Thailand. Production usually drops this time in China,” Daw Ohn Mar Kyaw elaborated.

The export price of Myanmar’s fresh chilli pepper is expected to rise, said Daw Ohnma Kyaw, chair of Myanmar Chilli Market and Technical Development Association.
“The price of fresh chilli pepper will increase. However, we cannot ensure that amidst the political climate and the COVID-19 crisis. Myanmar’s fresh chilli pepper will fetch a good price when the Chinese market cannot supply fresh chilli pepper to Thailand. Production usually drops this time in China,” Daw Ohnma Kyaw elaborated.
The neighbouring country China highly produces fresh chilli pepper. They export them to Thailand. The fruit production rate is declining in China at present. Myanmar’s fresh chilli pepper market will raise its head, she continued.
“We cannot compete against the Chinese market owing to poor quality packaging, lack of quality consistency and short supply,” Daw Ohnma Kyaw pointed out.
The prevailing price of fresh chilli pepper is only K1,300 per viss (a viss equals 1.6 kg), the domestic market’s data indicated.
Myanmar’s fresh chilli pepper is shipped to Viet Nam via sea route and primarily sent to China and Thailand via the cross-border land, Daw Ohnma Kyaw continued.
Nonetheless, the closure of the major border post Muse between Myanmar and China from 8 July brought Myanmar’s fresh chilli pepper export to China to a halt. Consequently, the chilli pepper produced by the Kyaukse area, which was supposed to be conveyed to China, was shifted to Thailand through the Myawady border post.
It is commonly grown in the Ayeyawady Region and Kyaukse Township of Mandalay Region. The export varieties of fresh chilli peppers are 692,777,999, Demon, Sunshine and Lucky One. — NN/GNLM
