Zhuhai Taiwan Farmers Venture Park in Jinwan District's Pingsha Town is ripe for the picking of fruit ranging from Taiwan wax apples and mangoes to characteristic Lingnan (Cantonese) litchis, lemons, and grapes.
Thanks to the variety, there is something in season all year round, allowing regular opportunities for visitors to pick their own.
With the introduction of new technology, Yongcheng Garden's more than 1,000 hectares (165 acres) is Zhuhai's largest-scale plantation for wax apples, with many high-quality varieties. Dragon fruit, wampee, guava, sweet corn, and papayas are expected to be grown there soon.

Elsewhere in the park, summer black grape vines have produced a relatively large crop at Baocheng Eco Garden. There is also a field of the newly introduced sun rose grapes that will go on sale within 10 days of being harvested.
The park's dominant fruit in the winter season are sweet oranges, according to a worker.
Established in 2008, Zhuhai Taiwan Farmers Venture Park is the first of its kind in Guangdong Province.
