Dragon fruti's price has begun soaring

Update: 3/15/2013

At the end of February 2013, dragon fruit's price was down slightly from 17,000 to 18,000 VND / kg, although dragon fruit growers sold their goods with this price, it was still guaranteed a high income for them.

In the last days of February 2013, dragon fruit's price fell a little compared to the time before the Chinese New Year, back at 18,000 VND / kg for the high quality dragon fruits.

However, for over one week in this month, dragon fruti's price has begun soaring. The price is about   21,000 - 22,000 VND / kg for type I (shiny skin, more than 300 grams / L weigh) if they're purchased right in farms, and the price is about 16,000 - 18,000 VND / kg for types 2.

In recent days, dragon fruit's price has raised about 3.000 - 5,000 VND / kg because of scarce supply, so the farmers are very excited. Many dragon fruit farmers are extremely excited because they get victory in this dragon fruit season. 
The average yield of dragon fruit depends on the technique care and geographical factors of the garden.  According to agriculture statistics, Tien Giang province has more than 2,500 ha of dragon fruit now, growing mainly at Rice Market district.
