Everyone loves zhacai, or pickled mustard tuber, in China. Whether eaten with breakfast porridge in the morning, stir-fried with meat to make a delicious dish for dinner, or simply added to soups for a little extra flavor, the picked vegetable always makes for a satisfying meal, thanks to its crunchy yet tender texture and delectable aroma.

Fuling district in Southwest China's Chongqing municipality is China's leading producer of pickled mustard tubers. Fuling pickles have been exported to more than 50 countries and regions, including Russia, Japan, Singapore and South Africa. The food ranks alongside Europe's pickled cucumber and Germany's sauerkraut as one of the world's three most famous pickled dishes.
