Planting fruit helps bring prosperity to Aksu in Xinjiang

By MAO WEIHUA and CHEN MEILING | CHINA DAILY | Updated: 2021-01-14 00:00

Saypidin Yasin said planting and selling walnuts has changed his life in the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region.

He used to take odd jobs to support his family of four in Yalhuz Terak village, Aksu prefecture. Despite working hard, his annual income was about 10,000 yuan ($1,544)-hardly enough to cover expenses.

He learned that many of his neighbors had made big money by planting walnuts, and he decided to give it a try.
