Hass avocados are scheduled to be exported to Thailand in November when the fruits ripen, at an expected floor price of K6,000 to K10,000 per kilogramme, according to Ko Kyaw Soe Min, secretary of the Myanmar Avocado Producers and Exporters Association.
“At the beginning of the season, floor prices are different from one another. For example, price of Amara avocado is K5,000 per kilogramme while Buccaneer stands at K4,000. As for the Hass, the floor price has been about K4,000 per kilogramme since last month if the buyer purchases the whole lot of fruit. Now that the season has started, we expect the floor price to be between K6,000 and K10,000,” Ko Kyaw Soe Min said.
The beginning of this year’s domestic avocado season may be better than that of last year. Last year, the price of avocado was only K2,500 to K4,000 per kilogramme, and this year’s floor price is nearly K5,000. — ASH/TH
