Recently in the Vietnam's fruit market, There has been appeared a kind of giant red pomegranate which has imported from India, South Africa vs Peru. Unbelievable, although its price is too much expensive about 200.000 vnd to 450.000 vnd per kg depending on different type (some luxury types are around 300.000 vnd per one pomegranate), people still like and find to buy them anyway.
At many supermarkets, although it's in promotion but giant red pomegranate's price up to 200.000 vnd per kg (from 400g to 550g per one).
About characteristic, it is easy to see that red pomegranate from Peru , India, and South Africa totally bigger than type from China (usually, it get more than 600 gram to 1 kg per one pomegranate). So it is normal size when the price up to 200.000 vnd for the normal pomegranate and higher than 300.000 vnd for the more-than-1-kg pomegranate counting on average price from 270.000 vnd to 320.000 vnd per kg.
Passing the high price, the amount of pomegranate can not be enough comparing people's need. Many customers have to book and wait for some days to buy India's pomegranate.
What is the reason of giant red pomegranate’s buying trend? We can see that today customer is worry about the quality of fruits from China because of different reasons related to food poisoning, cancer risk and so on. So Vietnamese customer is ready to pay more for imported fruits from other countries specially which come from Indian, South Africa or Peru.
The expensive price of giant red pomegranate showed that there was less importers import it into Vietnam because all fees for importing pomegranate from these above countries were too expensive too. High quality and high need but very low quantity make giant red pomegranate's become a hot trend while other popular fruits such as apple, grape...are still stabilizing about quantity and price because it had many importers on market.
