Employees package pomelos at a processing factory in Pinghe County, southeast China's Fujian Province, Sept. 17, 2020. Lying in the southwest of Fujian Province, Pinghe is famous for the cultivation of pomelos with a planting area of around 700,000 mu (about 46,667 hectares). Today, the output value of industries related to pomelo has surpassed ten billion yuan (about 1.48 billion U.S. dollars) as the annual yield of pomelos here has reached 1.3 million tonnes. Increasing per capita disposable income from 2,141 yuan (about 316 U.S. dollars) in 1996 to 19,360 yuan (about 2,860 U.S. dollars) in 2019, the cultivation of pomelos has paved the way for poverty alleviation and better life for the farmers who engage in the industries.
