Introduction to Pinggu Peach Farm (平谷蜜桃园)

These characteristics are a direct result of the unique geographical properties of Pinggu. With mountains on three sides and plains at its center, Pinggu’s fresh air, low pollution, sandy soil, plentiful water supply and the marked difference between day and night temperatures make for ideal peach growing conditions. Many orchards in Pinggu have been around for hundreds of years, and growers have perfected techniques that capitalize on the geographical conditions of the region to make one of the most desirable kinds of peaches in the world.

The farm's recorded long history of peach cultivation and distinctive geographic characteristics has made it a popular visitor attraction.Visitors can get hands-on experience of picking peaches and indulge themselves with those juicy and melliferous peaches as they like. The diverse landscape there also offers visitor a ton of enjoyments by exploring the valley, cayon, or excursing the stream.
