Scarcity drives up prices for Tet treats

The supply of speciality fruits in the Mekong Delta for the coming Tet (Lunar New Year), which falls in mid-February, will be scarce because unfavourable weather has affected output, according to farmers.

In recent days, the price of speciality fruit like Nam Roi grapefruit, green-peel and pink-flesh grapefruit and Hoa Loc mango has risen because of low supply.
