The price of dragon fruit in Binh Thuan is three times higher than before the Tet Lunar New Year

As a result, many gardeners have been selling dragon fruit for about a month and earn a high profit of over VND100 million per hectare. According to Binh Thuan bowl owners, this year the weather is unpredictable, the off-season dragon fruits after Tet produce low yields, while China’s market demand is rising sharply to push up prices. Expected, the current price level can be maintained in the next 2-3 months.

Binh Thuan province is the capital of dragon fruit with the total area of 26,500 hectares, the average output is 500,000 tons / year. At least 80% of the province’s dragon fruit output is exported to China.
