As it is summer, the watermelon market has been doing well, according to the market.
“The sale has been good as it is summer. Prices vary from K1,500 to K2,000 and K2,500 per watermelon. It is predicted that the local market will be fine because summer is coming. Watermelon sales have been active in Mandalay’s retail market,” said Ko Khine Zaw, a watermelon trader from Paleik.
More than 100,000 tonnes of watermelon were exported to China in September last year, according to the Fruits Wholesale Trading Centre (Muse). Over eight months, from January to the end of August 2023, more than 113,000 tonnes of watermelon were transported to China through the Muse trading zone by more than 7,000 trucks.
Last year, between November and July, watermelon production was abundant, and the price was reasonable in the Chinese market, but prices varied depending on the currency exchange rate. When exporting to China, service and inspection fees cost around 900 Yuan, excluding customs duty. — Thit Taw/ZS/ED
