Hass avocado sales brisk in domestic market

December 19


Hass avocado is primarily distributed in the domestic market and the sellers are doing a roaring trade, said U Myo Nyunt, vice chair of Myanmar Avocado Producers and Exporters Association.


Those avocados were harvested in November and they are abundantly seen in the domestic markets. The prices of avocados range between K3,000 and K7,000 per kilo depending on grades. The commercially valued Hass avocado is highly traded in the domestic market. It is marketable in the export market as well.


“At present, they are sold in the domestic market. The wholesale prices were from K3,000-K7,000 per kilo depending on sizes and grades. The harvest time is earlier than usual this year. Although the income of the people is falling, they purchase avocados. The avocado market is bustling,” he continued.


They are mainly sent to Yangon and Mandalay big cities and the remaining is delivered to Muse, Lashio and Monywa markets. The traders are aiming to expand the scope of the market depending on the market demand. They explore markets through digital platforms as well.—Min Htet Aung (Mandalay sub-printing house)/EMM
