Over 100,000 tonnes of watermelons exported to China in 8 months

More than 100,000 tonnes of watermelons were exported to China within eight months in 2023, as reported by the warehouses at the Muse border.
When it comes to exporting fruits, including locally grown watermelons, to China, the majority of these exports originate from the Muse 105-Mile trade zone. From January through August of this year, over 113 thousand tonnes of watermelons were exported through the border, utilizing more than seven thousand vehicles.
During the period from November to June, when local watermelons are in full bloom, the majority of them are exported. In 2022, when these watermelons were exported to China, they fetched favourable prices in the Chinese market. Hence, according to traders at the Muse border, more watermelons are expected to be exported to China when the next watermelon season arrives.
Currently in Myanmar, there are more than 8,000 acres of watermelons cultivated, with the highest cultivation reported in Shan State, followed by Sagaing and Mandalay. — TWA/KZW
