Farmers in the Mancheng district of Baoding, Hebei province, are busy picking persimmons, which have delivered a high yield this year.

Known for its Mopan persimmons — named for their large size and millstone shape — Mancheng has planted about 2,800 hectares of the fruit.

According to local farmers, each persimmon tree can produce around 100 kilograms of the fruit, with each kilogram selling for about 8 yuan ($1.10).

"I have grown more than 500 persimmon trees this year and they have brought higher income for me than before," said Yan Yingchun, one of the farmers.

The persimmons from Mancheng are welcome in markets at home and abroad. Some of them are exported.

Beyond harvesting the fresh fruit, the district has also developed a processing industry, including making persimmon vinegar and wine.
