In May 2017, the Sales Manager in Yunnan Province, Zhang Xuekun, visited the Jiuzihao base in Mosha Town, Xinping County, Yunnan Province to check the results of a nutritional program using Fruits & Veggies Plus Ultra Foliar to see if it had relieved the early symptoms of nutrient deficiency in Candy Orange trees.
The Story in Pictures shows the Difference
The two-year-old candy orange trees before treatment – they have already started partial fruiting. But the shoots are in poor condition, the leaves are hard and the symptoms of nutrient deficiency can be identified.
After being treated with Fruits & Veggies Plus Ultra Foliar – much healthier trees.

Facts about the Candy Orange and its Growing Location
The Chu orange is a fruit which everyone in China knows. It has a slight acidic taste along with the sweetness.
It was named after Chu Shijian, former chairman of the famous Hongtashan Group, who succeeded after a long period of failure by contracting 2400 mu (160 ha) of barren hills to grow candy orange. This fact, combined with the unusual life experience of Mr. Chu, also sees the Candy Orange called ‘Motivational Orange’.
