In northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, the plum harvest is quite promising. Adila Ekber, a staff member of the Yuejia Plum Industrial Park in Jiashi county, Xinjiang, stated: "The plums taste good and are rich in nutrients, especially high in anthocyanins, being highly popular among consumers. The demand for plums is high and the fruits are sold at home and abroad."
"Jiashi takes pride in being the leading region in both plum cultivation area and production nationwide," said an official from Jiashi. The county boasts an impressive 30,000 hectares of plum plantations, with an estimated production of 230,000 tons this year alone. The thriving plum industry in Jiashi has significantly contributed to the local economy as well.
