No rain good news to prefecture’s mango growers

Date Posted: 2002-06-23

While the rest of the prefecture residents are ardently hoping for rain to avoid the looming water rationing, prefecture’s mango growers are all smiles.

Mango requires warm and sunny weather to thrive and that’s what they are getting this year. Right now before the season really begins mangos at local supermarkets are fetching ¥1,500 to ¥2,000 a piece, and although the price will come down as more fruit is coming to the market, they are still expected to cost about ¥500 each.

Farmers expect this year to be a good one with a harvest totaling over 2,000 tons, the best ever. In comparison, the last year’s harvest totaled 1,600 tons. The prime harvest time is also two to three weeks earlier than normal.
