2-Day Tour to Pinghe Pomelo Farm & Nanjing Tulou

From ¥1085

The pomelo, a citrus fruit native to Southeast Asia, is usually pale green to yellow when ripe, with sweet white (or, more rarely, pink or red) flesh and a very thick spongy rind. The fruit is highly nutritious, and even has the health function of helping clear out the lungs and intestines of gunk and junk.

Pomelo has been cultivated in China for centuries, with the Guanxi Honey Pomelo being grown for more than 500 years in Pinghe County in Fujian Province. With the start of the yearly crop of Pinghe Honey Pomelo, everyone is very busy, from farmers to packing-houses to exporters. The Pinghe Honey Pomleo season typically starts at the end of August or the beginning of September and lasts until mid-January.
