DID YOU know that in Taiwan organic Cherry tomatoes sell for as much as the equivalent of P1,920 in Philippine money? Yes, and that is the reason why the Hua Lu Leisure Farm in Miaoli, Taiwan is devoting a big area to Cherry tomato in its 3.8-hectare organic farm.

Cherry tomato is planted on a staggered basis. We went around the growing area and we were really impressed by the performance of their Cherry tomato plants. They are so healthy and fruitful.

Many of the workers are women, especially the pickers, who are paid NT$100 to NT$225 per hour. That’s P160 to P360 per hour. Or P1,280 to P1,800 per 8-hours work. That’s just equivalent to about 1 to 1.5 kilos of Cherry tomato.

W visited Hua Lu Leisure Farm last June 19, 2014 upon the invitation of the Taiwan Leisure Farms Development Association through Leo Fang, manager for international marketing.

  1. Magandang Araw Sir Zac.

    Nakaka amazed naman kung gaano kalaki ng potensyal ng Cherry Tomato sa Taiwan,. Posible po ba ang exportation ng Cherry Tomato dito sa atin, Sana po magkaroon ng pagkakataon na makapagexport ang mga lokal nating magsasaka ng Cherry Tomato na ito, na magiging napakalaking tulong ito sa kanila..

    maraing salamat po.
