Latest Market Info: Feb, 2021
Growers have reported a good blossom despite the previously poor crop season. This is likely due to good rainfall, which has increased the volume of fruits on trees. The harvest, however, has faced certain challenges due to COVID-19 complications. The first few weeks have been slow to start, though this is somewhat expected, and we estimate the upcoming season’s production to closely mirror the 2019 season. Fruit prices continue to remain high due to heavy demand in fresh markets.
