The place of origin calls on people to eat cauliflower now is the most appropriate time, in addition to buying in the general market, you can also buy directly from the place of origin, each box of 20 kilograms (about 12 white cauliflower) with transportation only 500 yuan, can be purchased directly online, fitness and help farmers!

Cauliflower, broccoli, prices have been plummeting for a week.

Cauliflower and broccoli are similar in appearance, both Brassica oleracea and Brassica oleracea are derived from wild cabbage. Cauliflower is mostly white, such as the cloud-like parts are undifferentiated tissue, while the edible parts of broccoli are differentiated buds. The two related vegetables, each with a domestic planting area of about 1500 hectares, are popular at the winter table, but prices plummeted last week.

From the "Agricultural Wholesale Market Trading Station", we can see that over the past week, the wholesale price of cauliflower has continued to fall from 30 yuan per kilogram on January 19 to 15 yuan per kilogram on January 27, while the wholesale price of broccoli has dropped from 45 yuan per kilogram to 23 yuan per kilogram.

Puyan Township in Changhua County is the largest cauliflower producing area in Taiwan. The supply and Marketing Department of the Pu Yan Township Agricultural Association says that winter is the production season for cauliflower, and there will be more cauliflower before the Spring Festival. The recent rise in temperature has accelerated the ripening rate of cauliflower. Last week, the average daily auction volume sent to Beinong by the farmers' association reached 10 metric tons, but the transaction price was only 20 yuan per kilogram at most. "recently, the price of cartons has gone up. How can you bear it?"

The price and volume trend chart of cauliflower in January (data source / agricultural wholesale market trading website) the temperature suddenly warmed up, and the cauliflower that should have been harvested in batches matured at the same time.

"cauliflower can control the production date, so it should be a very stable crop." Mr. Zhang, the promotion unit of the Dacheng Peasants' Association in Changhua County, said that unlike cabbage and other leafy vegetables, cauliflower is not harvested until it is ripe. Take local farmers as an example. If two-part land is planted and the field is planted in batches, the harvest time can be extended to a month. If the weather is cold, cauliflower will mature slowly in batches, but as soon as it turns hot, all the cauliflower in the field will grow rapidly. the vegetables that should have been picked up in two weeks were picked at once, causing an explosion.

How serious is the explosion? Cai Jianwen, general manager of the Fruit and vegetable Wholesale Market in Xihu Town, Changhua County, explained that the market can usually digest 30 to 40 metric tons of broccoli a day, but the stock began to increase slowly last week, reaching 90 metric tons. "there are so many local wholesale markets for fruits and vegetables, not to mention Beinong." The sharp increase in purchase volume has led to an imbalance between supply and demand and a decline in prices.

The situation of broccoli is critical, and broccoli Brooks no delay. Chen Yu-Hua, director general of the farmers' association in Liujiao Township, Chiayi County, the largest producing area of broccoli, said that last week the price was about 40 yuan to 50 yuan per kilogram, and the current price remains at 30 yuan per kilogram, so farmers will not lose money, but the price is lower than middle. The reason is that the recent hot weather, broccoli ripens quickly, "especially above 25 degrees Celsius, the harvest time will be significantly shortened."
