Waxberries grown in Qingtian county of East China's Zhejiang province were sold for more than 10 yuan ($1.55) apiece in European markets, China Central Television reported in a Sunday TV program.

Local waxberry grower Zhang Chunhua said since 2019, they have sold waxberries to Singapore, Spain, the United States and other countries, but export orders this year have been better than ever.

Since June 1, when the first batches were sent abroad, Qingtian county has exported about 16.5 metric tons of waxberries this year, said Zhu Weihao, an official at Lishui customs.

Waxberries are sold by the kilogram in China, but they are considered a unique and high-end fruit in international markets, said Xia Xiaoqing, a local waxberry exporter. The major international consumers are overseas Chinese and their friends.
