The melons in Wanbang Market were slightly cheaper last week than they were two weeks ago. The main reasons for this development are as follows: first, the supply volume increased. The supply period of melons begins every year in March and ends in October. Last week melons entered the market in large volumes. The main production areas are in Shandong, Hebei, the northeast, and Hainan. Second, the number of available fruit varieties increases when summer comes near. Summer fruits like pineapples and mangoes enter the market in large volumes. Furthermore, pineapple and mango prices are in a stronger position than melon prices.
