But this year, the price of lemon was K40 per fruit, a drop by half this year compared to last year.

The lemon trees are widely grown in Kya-in-Seikkyi township, Kayin State, and the lemon cultivation is successful.
With the yield of lemons getting high in Kya-in-Seikkyi township, Kawkareik District, the local farmers grow the fruit on a commercial scale and earn extra income for their family.
As the lemons have yielded abundantly, the price of lemon has dropped naturally in this monsoon. But, the price of lemon is on the rise in summer.
In the last monsoon, the lemon price hit K15 per one. But the price rose to K150 or K200 per fruit depending upon the size in summer.
But this year, the price of lemon was K40 per fruit, a drop by half this year compared to last year.
There are many lemon growers in Kya-in Seikkyi township, and there are more than 10,000 acres of lemon plantations. The local growers send the fruit of the seasonal lemon annually to Mawlamyine town, Mon state and Yangon region through the fruit depots. — Myo Min Oo/GNLM
