This is the second Vietnamese fresh fruit licensed by Japan to enter the market after mango.

Like mango, exported dragon fruit should undergo a hot steam treatment process. Besides, the fruit should be bought from plantation areas having a Code of Practice granted by the Plantation Protection Department.

The Australian Ministry of Agriculture and Water Resources has recently released its final review of bio-security import requirements for Vietnam’s fresh dragon fruits to officially penetrate the market.

The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development proposed to build brand names for dragon fruit and mango - two key agricultural products of Vietnam as they are produced on a large scale with high consumption value, and food security is ensured.
