When it comes to the holiday season, it is hard to imagine a more perfect time for the sprouts industry.
The weather is nice, people are relaxing, and many of them are looking forward to having a new crop of sprouts planted.
But there are also growing concerns that sprouts could be a liability.
Chinese buyers want to grow their own, according to industry experts.
And as much as they love the holiday, Chinese consumers are wary of purchasing a crop that they will be forced to use for years.
A lot of Sprouts are planted around the world, and the plants that people grow in China are different from those grown elsewhere, said Dr. Robert Cauchon, a professor of botany at the University of California, Davis.
Sprouts grown in China, for example, are more likely to contain chemicals that could harm the environment.
Sprout growers in Europe, Japan, Australia and other countries have also reported problems with the plants growing and selling at home.
Sprouting in China is particularly problematic because of the large number of sprout plants that are imported from other countries, Cauhon said.
While the Sprouts have become more popular in China over the last few years, Caulon said there are still some questions about how China’s new crop is going to play in the global market.
Sprouted food is not only a big hit for Chinese consumers, but it is also the source of much of China’s export earnings.
Sprinters are the primary ingredient in many popular Chinese dishes and beverages, including the most popular noodles and soups.
In addition to the sprout industry, there is a huge market for sugar beets, which are used to make beverages like iced tea, iced coffee and iced iced teas.
It’s unclear how much the global food and beverage market for iced teas is worth, Caudill said.
The United States is the world’s top producer of iced-tea, but in 2016, the United States exported less than $1 billion worth of ice tea.
“I can’t say how many of the American ice tea producers that I’ve talked to have lost a lot of business, but I think that the Chinese are really concerned about the impact of ices,” Caudil said.
It’s not clear how big a portion of the Chinese market Sprouts will take.
Cauhout said he doesn’t think that Chinese consumers would necessarily be willing to pay $25 for a new sprout or $1,000 for a fresh one, even if it is certified organic.
There is also an ongoing debate in the Chinese community about how Sprouts should be grown in specific locations.
According to Cauhs opinion, Sprouts from China are likely to be grown indoors, which is not necessarily what the Chinese want.
Another major concern for Sprouts is how well they will compete with other varieties of crops that are already grown in certain parts of the world.
China’s new Sprout crop is expected to compete with more expensive, regional crops like Japanese kiwi and Italian pomegranate.
Last year, Sprouts started to make inroads in South America, where some farmers are hoping to diversify their farming.
Some farmers are growing sprouts to replace the crop they lost in South Korea because of climate change.
Although Sprouts can grow on land with a lot more water than in the traditional growing regions, the Sprout is not expected to be as drought-resistant.
