"Changing clothes" for lake with Hue lotus 

In addition to enjoying the scenery of the lotus lake in its blooming season, through the typical products of Hue lotus which are integrated with the stories, visitors will know more about the cuisine, culture and history ... of the ancient capital.

After nearly a month of implementation, the lakes at the tomb of King Thieu Tri, at Phu Luong A (Quang Dien) and Ngu Ha - the sections on the two sides of An Hoa gate, were planted with thousands of Hue lotus root.

 “Replacing water-fern and water spinach, by covering empty lakes with lotus can beautify the landscape. On the other hand, it aims to enhance the brand of Hue lotus by exploiting products fromlotus, such as lotus tea, lotus seed, lotus embryo... ,” said Ms. Pham Thi Dieu Huyen, Director of Moc Truly Hue's - the enterprise implementing this project.

According to Ms. Dieu Huyen, when the lotus is in its blooming season, in addition to enjoying the beauty of the lotus lake, through the products with the typical flavor of Hue lotus integrated with the stories, visitors will know more about the cuisine, culture and history ... of the ancient capital.

Hue lotus products, such as lotus seeds, lotus embryo, lotus tea ... are very popular. Unfortunately, Hue lotus is exploited in only one season per year, so it does not achieve the desired effect in promoting its image and brand name.

Overcoming this limitation, Moc Truly Hue's applies the freeze-drying food method - one of the most advanced technologies in processing food after harvesting so that the products from Hue lotus can appear in all 4 seasons. Besides that, whenever coming to Hue, visitors can feel the taste of Hue lotus. “This is how Moc Truly Hue’s brings products to everyone, thereby enhancing the brand name of Hue lotus,” Ms. Huyen talked about her idea.

It is expected that Moc Truly Hue’s will continue to plant Hue lotus in Voi Re (Elephants’ Roar) Temple and some other lakes in Quang Dien.

The following are some photos of the locations where Hue lotus has been planted for nearly a month:

The implementers, who choose lotus seeds and plant them, are experienced with a long tradition of lotus cultivation, so the probability of lotus growing well and having a good flowering in the right season is very high

In addition to the two above-mentioned places, Hue lotus is also grown in Quang Dien, and,upcoming, in Voi Re Temple with the purpose of adding more beautiful landscapes as well as products for tourists.

According to Ms. Dieu Huyen, the freeze-drying food method will help Hue lotus products to be available in all 4 seasons in a year with the almost unchanged quality
