Many Hanoians are fascinated with pear flowers, off-season wild peach flowers, and now these flowers are hot on the “web market”.
In the spring, the main season of these flowers, the price of a pear and peach branch is quite cheap, only from a few hundred thousand dong and sold everywhere. But now it’s off-season, so not only are the goods scarce, but the prices are also “cheap”, although their attraction has not decreased.

Ms. Do Phuong (Cau Giay, Hanoi) said: “It’s early autumn, no one thought that this kind of wild flower would appear in Hanoi. Pear flowers exist, but are extremely rare. In the high mountains, if there are a few days of sudden cold weather, you may encounter a pear tree that has buds and begins to bloom. The flower branches just have a bud, then I dare to import and sell to customers, but this product is not available.”
Phuong said, her family had to go through many hills, scouring for many days after cold weather, if they were lucky, they could find a pear tree with flowers.
Just start to pop the buds, depending on the size and size, the price is different, sometimes 500,000 – 800,000 VND/branch, sometimes 2 – 3 million VND/branch. And as soon as the goods arrived, Phuong’s customers closed immediately.

Ms. Phuong has been trading all kinds of pear, peach, plum and persimmon branches for several years and is very popular with customers. She said that no matter what time of year, the forest pear branch has never been “hot”, especially at the current off-season, it attracts more and more customers to buy.
Customers who play this type of flower also have quite special needs. They are usually financial guests, with spacious houses and often like large, beautiful branches. Many customers ordered pear branches, but Phuong did not dare to accept them, because she herself did not know when the goods would be available.
“I have a few dozen customers, just waiting for the goods to arrive, see the photos to close the price for immediate shipping”Phuong said.
Currently, it is very difficult for customers to buy pear branches, only if they are lucky enough to buy them. But in addition, more available than plum branches, the branches are about 2m long, have flowers, cost more than 2 million VND per branch.

These large branches cost about 1.3-2.5 million VND, which is sought by many customers. (Photo: NVCC)
Phuong also said that only a few days ago, in some northern mountainous areas, pear branches began to sprout, so she has only sold off-season pear branches for about 1-2 weeks. “Every 2 days from home, there is a truckload of goods to Hanoi, and every time the truck comes back, it will be empty.”.
Peach branches with flowers, about 1-1.2m long, are sold in sets (10 branches) for about 200,000 VND. (Photo: NVCC)
Not only pear branches, Phuong also sells peach branches, plum branches, rose branches, hawthorn branches… These types are cheaper, only about 180,000 – 200,000 VND/set of 10 branches (about 1.2m long (about 1.2m long). ).

Ms. Nguyen Hoang Yen (Hanoi) shared: “Playing pear flowers and peaches out of season really feels very special. Seeing the flowers bloom makes me think that Tet has come. I contacted to order a large branch. a little bit to play in the house because this flower has been around for a long time. Unfortunately when I asked, the seller was already sold out. I had to wait, hopefully soon.”
