On Thursday, a drone captured over 66,65 square kilometres of hawthorn fruiting in Zheng Chai village of Yuncheng city, which came to be considered a bumper crop.

"Our village planted a lot of hawthorn trees. Every household has hawthorn trees. My family planted 4,000 to 4,665 square metres of hawthorn trees," Fan, a local farmer, said.

She also noted that although this year's output is not as good as last year's, the profit is 20 percent higher.

When local farmers finish sorting out their family’s hawthorn, during their spare time they can also come out to help others. Farmers can earn about 10 yuan (1.40 USD; 1.45 EUR) per hour sorting these fruits.

Hawthorn is well known in traditional Chinese medicine and is used as a herbal remedy. The number of different varieties of hawthorn in China is also very rich.
