"This year marks the fourth year since my Xinmei trees started bearing fruit. In the first year, I sold them for 5,000 yuan ($685), in the second year for 140,000 yuan, in the third year for 170,000 yuan. This year, my Xinmei trees brought in 850,000 yuan. In the future, I will continue to manage my Xinmei orchard well, aiming for an annual income exceeding 1 million yuan," says Abliz.

Xinmei has become a pillar sector for increasing incomes and enriching people in Payzawat. Last year, it contributed an average increase of 5,650 yuan per capita for local farmers.

Inside the Guangdong-Payzawat Xinmei Modern Industrial Park, workers are packing the fruits into boxes for cold chain distribution to major cities in northern, central, and southern China.

Payzawat county has established a cold chain logistics system with a total capacity of 150,000 tons, extending the sales period from the previous 20 to 30 days to two to four months, which has led to higher selling prices.

Additionally, the county has introduced companies to develop and manufacture 22 types of products, including fruit juice, dried fruit, fruit wine and fruit jam, thus forming a complete chain for Xinmei.
