Ripe cherry picking together!
Cherry picking around Chongqing at about 30 yuan per jin
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- Unconsciously, cherries are quietly appearing in the fruit shops on the streets and they are ripening in the orchards around Chongqing. The cherries are ripening a week or two earlier than in previous years due to the weather and the nature of their growth. The reporter from Chongqing Evening News visited fruit supermarkets and farmers’ markets and found that cherry prices are roughly 20-25 yuan per jin, with on-site picking at around 30 yuan per jin, a slight increase in price compared to previous years. If you have had enough of strawberries and oranges, why not change your tastes and buy some cherries to try at home? You can also go to the cherry picking sites around Chongqing and eat them as you pick.
