Ma Lianghua, a 36-year-old villager in Wuzhong city in Ningxia Hui autonomous region, started picking Chinese wolfberries at 7 am on Friday.

The trees, whose average height is one meter, are filled with red Chinese wolfberries in the Hongsibao Chinese wolfberry base in the city's Dahe township.

Ma is one of 80 skilled workers hired by the base to pick the first batch of ripe Chinese wolfberries this year, said Ma Tao, the person in charge at the base.

On average, a worker can pick 35 kilograms of Chinese wolfberries a day. The output of the first batch of Chinese wolfberries is low and they are highly coveted as a result, Ma Tao said.
