The price of grapes in the Yangon market has declined following unseasonal rainfall in the Mandalay Region last December and the consequent low yield,
which has reduced the demand for grapes, according to a report in Myawady Daily
Torrential rainfall results in low yield. The prices this year are much lower than that of last year, said a vine grower from Yamethin Township.
Apart from the local varieties, imported grapes from China and Thailand are also gaining market shares.
The black queen and big black grape varieties are primarily grown in Myanmar.
Currently, there are more than 5,000 acres of vineyards across the country. Grapes are mostly grown in Kyaukpadaung, Meiktila, Mandalay, Sagaing, Monywa, Pakokku, Yenangyoung, Yamethin
and Pyawbwe townships.
