China: Honey Pomelo available at Oriental Orchard

In 1900's, as a herbalist doctor, Mr. Johnny Sue's great grandfather happened to cultivate Honey Pomelo plants by extracting decoctions of leaves, flowers and rind. Up to now, these decoctions are given for their sedative effect in cases of epilepsy, chorea and convulsive coughing. The hot leaf decoction is applied on swellings and ulcers. The fruit juice is taken as a febrifuge. The sarcocarps are employed against coughs, dyspepsia and lumbago. Gum that exudes from declining trees is collected and taken as a cough remedy.

An essence prepared from the flowers is taken to overcome insomnia, also as a stomach, and cardiac tonic. The pulp is considered an effective aid in the treatment of urinary disorders. Leaf extractions have shown antibiotic activity. In the year of 1920, Mr Johnny Sue's grandfather opened up an wasteland of 1 acre around his house. Later, this cultivated land was set up as an orchard for Honey Pomelo planting, which later became our firm Oriental Orchard Ltd., has been a famous export-oriented grower of nutritious and healthy Honey Pomelo.

In 1980, due to the domestic shortage of Honey Pomelo, the orchard was extended and started its Honey Pomelo distribution to domestic markets. And some Honey Pomelos were exported to Russia via Manchuria, China. This kind of nutritious and healthy fruit was introduced to Russian market successfully in middle 1980's.

Since 2002, with the help of some export companies, Honey Pomelos which satisfied EU standards from Oriental Orchard were exported to the Netherlands, Germany, Great Britain and the rest of Europe, North America and the South-east Asia.

In 2008, along with Excelsior Integrated Crop Protection and Quality Assurance Systems, Oriental Orchard gained its GLOBAL G.A.P. (EUREPGAP) Certificate from SGS lab. Combined with Oriental Orchard's abundant Honey Pomelo resources, it's our well-timed to play an key role in Honey Pomelo exportation.

Nowadays Oriental Orchard is a leading professional grower, processor and vendor of export-oriented Honey Pomelos in Fujian, China. With decades of experience in Integrated Crop Protection and Quality Assurance Systems, we now manage to supply over 3,000 metric tons Honey Pomelo monthly.

Food safety, sustainability, innovation and logistic efficiency have a high priority in all Oriental Orchardís activities.
