How to cut dragon fruit
Dragon fruit is a special fruit in Viet Nam. I think this fruit is just behind durian. many Vietnamese people don't like eating them. But, their taste are not bad. For me, they're more delicious when you use cold. Dragon fruit has 2 types: purple flesh and white flesh. However, the taste of them are sweetness and cool. Their peel is quite thin, so they're easy putrid. The transportation is not good. Anyways, I hope people around the world will have the chance to try them.

Dragon fruit in Binh Thuan increased and maintained high after the Lunar New Year 2017 to present.
Dragon fruit export standards are purchased by traders at the garden about 18,000 VND / kg, sometimes up to 20,000 VND / kg; VietGAP dragon fruit is approximately 25,000 VND / kg. The small fruits consumed in the country also fluctuate 11,000-12,000 VND / kg. This is the record price of dragon fruits in Binh Thuan, three times higher than before Tet.
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.
The price of agricultural products in general, dragon fruit in particular, which the newspaper reported, from the garden to the retailer increased many times, can be concluded is due to too many intermediaries.
I give an example of this, the cost of transportation (including loading, car rental) of the owner of the basket from the local dragon fruit to Ho Chi Minh City has lost about 2,000 VND / kg. The profit of the owner is 500 VND / kg more, that is, the total price has added 2,500 VND / kg. But not people have sold to the owners immediately because of low output, transportation is far away, so they have to sell to another level as local traders.
Dr. Vu Dinh Anh, economist: Many intermediate steps lead to agricultural products price.
Through traders, fruit prices are added at least a few thousand per kg. When the dragon fruit reaches wholesale markets in Ho Chi Minh City, the vendor sells to an intermediary who lures the wholesalers to wholesale markets. The words of the middleman is 500 VND / kg. Intermediaries sell to retailers in markets, shops with a profit of about 1,500 VND / kg. Thus, from the garden to the retailer, the price of fruit increased by VND 6,000 - 7,000 per kg.
But that is not the final number, because retailing to the consumer is the object that pushes the price up the most, usually 40-50% of the value they buy. Not only dragon fruit, I know, Lai Vung mandarin, ...
