Haipu lotus roots

    Haipu lotus roots

    Hunei’s lotus fields are distributed along the banks of the Hankou Canal in Haipu Li and Haishan Li; the cultivation history is at least half a century. The soil in Haipu and Haishan is saline soil, therefore the lotus roots grown here are especially aromatic and sweet. The growth period of lotus roots is approximately 100~120 days, with a maximum of two harvests per year. The lotus roots are cultivated roughly around the Tomb Sweeping Festival and harvested after the Dragon Boat Festival.
