Mangosteen growers from Kawkareik township are satisfied with the excellent result of this popular seasonal fruit as they are getting a reasonable price this year.
The mangosteen is grown chiefly in Pharkya, Laukkai, Thatamaindaut villages from Taunggyarinn village-tract and Hteesukee village from Winka village, Kawkareik township, Kayin State.
“The mangosteen price is rising this year like last year. But this year, the yield of mangosteen is better than last year. The fruit traders from across the country reached the farmlands to buy the fruits. The fruit is priced depending upon the size and quality. At this time, the price of mangosteen is ranging K 90-K 200 per fruit,” said a local mangosteen grower from Pharkya village.
The mangosteen is being sold at the seasonal fruit selling shops. The farmers also send them across the nation. The sale of mangosteen is not quite well this year as last year at the fruit display shops. But the fruit traders are demanding the fruits these days. At least ten mangosteen baskets containing 300 fruits or 500 fruits in each basket are sent across the region daily. The basket can include 300 fruits or 500 fruits, depending upon the size of the fruit. But, the price is the same, fetching K 60,000 per basket,” said a seasonal fruit grower from Kodain village.
