Peach blossoms cover Hanoi village

Many peach trees in Nhat Tan Ward in Hanoi have started blooming days before the Lunar New Year or Tet.

Many households in Nhat Tan have grown peach trees for many generations. However, due to rapid urbanisation, more land has been used for construction, the number of local peach growers has decreased.

A land plot by the Red River which was used for planting mulberry trees have been turned into peach tree gardens.

People have been rushing to Nhat Tan, an area well-known for growing peach blossom flowers, to buy peach blossom trees and branches to decorate their houses or offices.

The weather has been quite for favourable for peach growers.

The prices of peach blossom branches vary, often ranging from less than VND100,000 (USD4.47) to around VND700,000 (USD30.43).

 

 

Lots of peach trees are grown alternately with other kinds of flowers.

Many gardens only have the kinds of small beach trees to serve demand on the 15th day of the 12th lunar month, the Kitchen Gods' Day or to be displayed on tea tables.

Peach growers now have more ways to adjust the blooming time of peach trees despite unfavourable weather conditions.
