NANJING - For almost four decades, Yu Huanqin, a peach farmer in Yangshan township in East China's Jiangsu province, has kept records of peach prices in every harvest season.

Yu, 63, has seen peach prices surge from a few cents per kilogram in the late 1980s to more than 50 yuan ($7.40) per kg today.

After the harvest, she plans to embark on her annual trip around China. "I have visited almost all the famous tourist spots in China, with the money earned from my peach business," she said.
