Qionghai -in the east of Hainan Province- plans to boost international cooperation in the cultivation of rare fruits. There are already more than 400 varieties of exotic fruits imported from other countries in this part of the island. Sapote and finger limes are among these fruits. Plantations of these and many other unusual tropical fruits are located there. In recent years, the pilot project has created an important channel for organizing the bulk exports of rare tropical fruits from Hainan.
The program is being implemented with the involvement of the states of Southeast Asia, including Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. The province is actively cooperating with these countries, exporting seeds, seedlings and advanced agricultural technologies to grow exotic fruits outside the island. Through such cross-border projects, Hainan is expected to create popular international brands of rare tropical fruits faster.
