Dragon fruit in Binh Thuan increased and maintained high after the Lunar New Year 2017 to present.
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.
