                         Giant perfume lemons
The planting base for Taiwan fruits in Lotus Village, Lotus Town, Tongan District, Xiamen, has developed a new variety of lemon that originated in Taiwan – the giant scented lemon.
This lemon is seedless and juicy, and it has a thinner skin compared to the ordinary lemon. It can reach a weight of 3.5 kg, and its wholesale price is 11 yuan ($1.8) per kg, almost twice as much as an ordinary lemon.
Huang Hongyou, a manager  at the planting base, said that he introduced the perfume lemon to Xiamen in 2001, and that he planted 1000 perfume lemon trees which are expected to yield 250,000 kg annually.
He has not had a harvest until this year, and he said that he hopes that Xiamen people will enjoy his giant perfume lemons.
