In a greenhouse of the Jinghui Specialized Growers Cooperation in Nanhua Town rows of celery grow verdant and lush. The plants in this greenhouse are full of life and grow rapidly.
According to Liu Yaodong, director general of the cooperation, this is the height of the celery harvest. The celery has been planted in more than 80 greenhouses and the production volume is huge, the flavor excellent, and the texture is tender. The celery is very popular with consumers from other parts of the country. Moreover, both the production volume and the price increased compared to last year.
One of the farmers stated that the market conditions for peppers were not bad this year. The wholesale price of pepper is around 4 yuan [0.63 USD] per 0.5 kg. The pepper grew well this year, and supply is likely to last until May next year.
