ALA'ER, Sept. 18 (Huyangnet) -- As an old Chinese saying “White Dews (Chinese: 白露） arrived, the bamboo pole shook, and the little walnuts ran all over the floor.”, just after White Dews this year, employees of the 3rd Regiment of the 1st Division of XPCC, known as “the town of thin-skinned walnuts”, were busy harvesting walnuts.

On September 14, in the 110-mu walnut garden contracted by the family of Han Yaming, a fruit farmer in the 5th Company of the regiment, 18 people who came to do part-time jobs were busy harvesting, washing and drying walnuts.
"A lot of workers are needed when harvesting walnuts." Han Yaming said, "This year my 110-mu orchard can produce 38 tons of dried nuts, and the net income is more than 400,000 yuan."

According to reports, the regiment is located on the northwestern edge of the Taklimakan Desert. It has a warm temperate continental arid desert climate and is rich in photothermal resources, where it’s suitable for planting featured fruits, like walnuts, pears, red dates etc.. The regiment, as the main producing area of high-quality thin-skinned walnuts in southern Xinjiang, was identified as the first batch of national “walnut demonstration bases” by the State Forestry Administration in 2013. In 2015, thin-skinned walnuts there were awarded the “Agricultural Product Geographical Indications Registration and Protection Product” certificate issued by the Ministry of Agriculture.
"The walnuts here are thin in shell so it can be easily cracked by hands. With its good tasty, sales are not problems." In the walnut garden, Feng Qingjun, a merchant from Henan, told the author.

It is understood that in recent years, based on regional advantages, the regiment has vigorously promoted the adjustment of agricultural structure and focused on the green ecological organic brand, which effectively improved the competitiveness of featured fruits and agricultural markets. .
