Strawberry price 30% lower than last year
Currently, greenhouse strawberries have become the major off-season fruit in the market. The retail price of local greenhouse strawberries range from 20 to 30 yuan/kg, and the wholesale price is as low as 10 to 18 yuan/kg, which is lower by nearly 30% year-on-year. Compared to the same period of last year, this year's greenhouse strawberries came to the market earlier, and the product quality was better. Although there have been several cold spells since the winter, the strawberries matured earlier due to fewer cloudy days, as well as the sufficient sunlight. Oversupply of the strawberry and its short shelf life caused the wholesale price to drop by 2 to 4 yuan/kg compared to last year. The price may drop further if the temperature gets higher in a few days.
