In Linjia village of Fenghua district, Ningbo, East China’s Zhejiang Province, peach trees sweep across Wangjia Hill, beaming red with brilliant flowers and plentiful fruit. When spring arrives, full-blown clusters tint the hillsides with a warm, delightful pink. Then in midsummer, these blossoms turn into large, ripe peaches, getting ready for harvest. The honey peach growing in Fenghua – famed as “the fruit from the abode of immortals” – is prized for its sweetness and juiciness and has gained popularity at home and abroad.
On July 8, Andrea Steckle Jiang from Germany went peach-picking at Wangjia Hill with her daughter and son.
