Nanhui peaches on their way to Singapore
The city’s first batch of local yellow peaches — 200 kilograms — will be exported to Singapore on Saturday after passing inspection by local customs on Friday.
The peaches are from the Nanhui region of the Pudong New Area and will be sold in high-end supermarkets in Singapore.
The head of the peach orchard said it was a challenge during the novel coronavirus outbreak. In the future, they are willing to send more fruit overseas.
Local fruits, including citrus, honey peaches and grapes from Chongming District, have been sold in other countries since 1986.
Shanghai Customs said it will remain focused on developing a quicker but stricter way for the verification of fruit intended for export.
