Why is Chinese toon so expensive
The price of a catty of Toona sprouts is about 50 yuan.
The yield per mu of Toona sinensis is different from that of open-air planting according to different areas. Generally, three crops are planted in the greenhouse. The price of the first crop is more than 40 yuan per kilogram, the second crop is a few yuan per kilogram, and the third crop is about one yuan per kilogram. Generally speaking, the factors that affect the price are season and region. The price will be lower in the region where Toona sinensis seedlings grow, higher in the region where Toona sinensis seedlings don't grow, lower in season and more expensive in non season. Therefore, we need to see the price according to the actual situation.

Chinese toon buds will wilt four or five days after they are picked from trees. Generally, when they are picked from the producing area, they have to be packed and transported immediately.
