Housewives “surprised” with watermelon for over 700,000 VND

Since the beginning of the year until now, watermelon prices have often been at a low level. Even in supermarkets, watermelons usually cost no more than 20,000 VND/kg, many times under 10,000 VND/kg.

Because of this, many people couldn’t help but be surprised to see watermelons, which were not imported goods, but cost ten times as much.

A representative from retail chain Organica said that the watermelon products have been certified organic by the US and the EU. The reason watermelon prices are high is because organic fruit is hard to grow. In addition, the farming process does not use chemical fertilizers, so the product is very dependent on the weather, so the goods are not evenly distributed. In the near future, the garden will be planting small melon varieties that will suit today’s families.
