HANOI, Aug 30 (Xinhua): Nguyen Huy Phong, a 50-year-old farmer from a hamlet in Vietnam's central Binh Thuan province, has sold over 10 tons of dragon fruits from his 0.6-hectare farm so far this year, while he still expects a higher price of his harvest.

Phong has managed to sell his most recent batch of first-grade dragon fruits, which are better looking and of higher quality than normal ones, at a price of 10,000 Vietnamese dong (40 cents) per kg.
