Recently, it was learned from the Characteristic Industry Development Center of Wuming District of Nanning City that the popularity of Wuming “Wo” Citrus kicked back in the market after Qingming Festival, leading to a buying rush. The prices of good “Wo” citrus in several production areas have risen to some certain degrees.
Since the introduction of the “Wo” citrus by Wuming District, the fruit has been well welcomed by consumers and growers due to its excellent quality. At present, Wuming District has planted 390,000 mu of the fruit, of which 180,000 mu has seen fruit grow this year, with a total output of about 450,000 tons. The sales period of mature “Wo” citrus this year was in late January. Due to such unfavorable factors as the inconvenient transportation caused by the cold and rainy weather around the Spring Festival and the snowy and icy weather in the north, the purchasing price of “Wo” citrus fluctuated a little bit in the early stage, but overall it remained relatively stable. At the end of March when the harvest was about to end, the weather got warm, and the number of buyers increased. Up to now, nearly 90% of the “Wo” citrus in Wuming District has been harvested and sold. It is expected that all the “Wo” citrus will be sold by the end of April.
