Shan garlic is seen in the market.

In the same five-year period from 2018 to 2022, the price of Shan garlic on 20 December 2022 hit the highest, according to price comparisons. No price rate in those years competes with the price of 20 December 2022.
The wholesale price of special-size garlic from Shan State, K5,000 per viss (a viss equals 1.6 kilogrammes), has become the highest price in the past five years. The wholesale record price of Kyukok garlic in 2021 and 2022 was K8,000 and K7,000 per viss respectively.
Among the stable market of Shan garlic and tamarind in 2022, a viss of Shan garlic increased by around K1,000 in price in post-mid-December, a Shan garlic seller said.
New Shan garlic can be seen in the market in the first six months of 2023. Before that happens, the garlic price skyrocketed due to the damage to the remaining stock.
The wholesale price of Shan garlic slightly changed from 3,000 kyats to 4,000 kyats per viss before. On 20 December, it shoots up to K3,700-K5,000 per viss. The price of Kyukok garlic rose from the previous price of K3,150 to K3,450 per viss on 20 December. The highest price rate was so far K4,200 per viss of big-size Shan garlic in 2022.
The rising price of leftover Shan garlic may bring the high-priced new Shan garlic in early 2023.
In this case, this year’s Shan garlic growers will get a handsome price for crops, like growers of rice, chilli pepper, black gram, chickpea, monsoon onion and sugarcane. — TWA/CT
