For the past five years, strawberries grown in Tangwang town, Jinan, have earned national gold awards. Shao Jianhai, a 50-year-old farmer who has been producing strawberries for 22 years, develops and cultivates them.
His strawberries are grown in greenhouses and can be plucked at any time of the year. Organic fertilizers he uses increase the size and flavor of the fruit. The fruits are primarily offered in Beijing and Shanghai.
According to Shao, he can earn more than 1 million yuan ($157,128.94) by selling strawberries. Now he has cultivated eight varieties of strawberries and he has helped more than 300 households in the town improve their lives by growing strawberries.
