- The first batch of Vietnamese dragon fruit was sold at Perth Market City in Western Australia by the Empro Company, a Western Australian Fruit & Vegetables wholesaler, on October 24.

Empro Director, Phan Son, who is an overseas Vietnamese in Perth, said Vietnamese dragon fruits were sold quickly in Asian super markets and IGA grocery stores in Perth city.

The company has signed an agreement to bring more Vietnamese dragon fruits to the Coles super market network in Australia, he said.
