Fruitable Hong Kong


Back when the rural was not yet surrounded by the city, Hong Kong people grew fruits locally. In the 60s and 70s, local fruits had their golden times in Hong Kong. Lychee and longan trees were planted at villages and along walking paths; hundreds of fruit trees like tangerine, wampee and papaya form orchards at the village fringe.

In fact, local fruits are still here with us: if you look closer. Little is left though, and it is up to us to save the rest.

Four city dwellers crossed paths with local fruits accidentally and decided to start “Fruitable Hong Kong”: to tell the stories of local fruits and promote a local fruit consumption culture.
