Prices of Mudon mangosteens soar as season begins

As Mon State is known for its fertile land ideal for agricultural and horticultural crops, as well as rubber, the perennial crop mangosteens are fetching better prices compared to previous years.
According to a farmer from Mudon township, mangosteen trees thrive in hot, humid climates with flat, sandy loam soil. Mangosteen can be grown from seeds or through grafting techniques of reproduction, requiring only about 20 feet of space between each tree, and they are renowned for their pest resistance and longevity, often living up to 50 years. The prices of mangosteen range from K300 to 800 per fruit, and they are being sold in city markets and towns in Mawlamyine, Bago, Yangon, Mandalay and even other townships.
The officials from the agriculture department in Mudon Township are focusing on research plantations to develop and grow high-quality fruits, aiming to boost the fruit industry and facilitate fruit exports through collaboration with local farmers, sharing techniques with them. — Aung Myo Thu/ TRKM
