Social media influencers happily picked Langshan navel orange

Taking the opportunity of the 6th China ~ Langshan Navel Orange Cultural Tourism Festival, a group of social medial influencers went to Xinning county to find the birthplace of Langshan navel orange, Xiangtang Village in Qingjiangqiao town to pick navel oranges.

Why must they choose Xiangtang Village? There are two reasons.

Firstly, Xiangtang is the birthplace of Langshan navel orange. To make a long story short, the time goes back to 1930, when Chen Zhong, who was studying at the Huangpu Military Academy and was excellent in academics, obtained several Washington navel orange seedlings from the American instructors and planted them in his hometown of Xiangtang.

The American navel orange that came across the ocean is very well suited to the soil and water of Xiangtang. Chen Zhong became the first person to introduce navel orange to China, and Xiangtang Village became the birthplace of Chinese navel orange.

Secondly, the Big-V opinion leaders, a group of travel experts who love to catch typical examples and pretend to be forced, went to Xiangtang to pick navel oranges, which seemed to be higher.
