DUE to an increase in harvest, the prices of durian, pomelo, and mangosteen have gone down based on the price monitoring conducted by SunStar Davao at the fruit stands of the Magsaysay Fruit Vendors Association, Magsaysay Park.
Last week the price of Durian ranged from P120 per kilogram (kg) to as much as P200/kg, but this week it ranges from P80/kg to P150/kg.
Pomelo is now priced at P100 from last week's price of P120/kg to as much as P150/kg.
Despite the prices going down, mangosteens are priced high at P500/kg as compared to P700/kg last week.
In an interview with the vendors, prices in previous weeks were high due to lack of supply. (Keisha Pulido, Ateneo de Davao University Intern)
