Harvest Time

2005-11-12@09-47-35
It’s harvest time in Yichang. This area of Hubei province is famous for its Mandarin Oranges. Right now, if you were to ride out into the countryside you would pass orchards of mandarin oranges ready for harvest. Trees literally loaded down with fruit.

Some are sold in local marketplaces by folks like our favorite fruit seller below.

Many are sorted and crated in warehouses, loaded on to trucks like the one below heading for Shandong province. Almost all will be canned for shipping overseas, eventually ending up in fruit salads everywhere!

By the way, they taste fantastic when fresh! We load our table with them all winter long.
