The prices have increased five times over last month to reach VND16,000-17,000 a kilogram of best dragon fruits, said Mr. Pham Huu Thu from the province’s Department of Agriculture and Rural Development on September 1.
Normal kind fetches VND5,000-7,000, up from only VND1,000 a month ago, he said.
The main dragon fruit season is going to end. Farmers now prepare for an unseasonal crop which will bear fruits two months later.
