Leaders of the province and Hue City presenting flowers to celebrate Hue Thanh tra grapefruit Festival
In promoting the results of the last six terms of organization of the festival, Hue Thanh tra grapefruit Festival this year is taking place from September 1 to 4, with the theme "Thuy Bieu Thanh tra grapefruit – the Flavor of Hue". This is a cultural and economic event, aiming to affirm and honor the quintessential values of the planting and caring for thanh tra grapefruit trees, which have been preserved by generations of Thuy Bieu locals in particular and Hue citizens in general.
Thanks to that, the fruit trees and traditional horticulture secrets have still been closely associated with the local community. Among the precious products is thanh tra grapefruit, which was recognized by the State as a trademark in 2007, set a National Record, and listed in the top 50 famous fruit specialties in Vietnam in 2016, based on the set of criteria for announcing the value of Vietnamese specialties.
