Tan Yen guava - delicious fruit in four seasons

(BGO) – Going through the green guava orchards on the fields running along the hillsides, adorned with the white color of the styrofoam covering the fruits, the sweltering June heat seems to ease. Although it was planted in Tan Yen district (Bac Giang province) not long ago, the Taiwanese guava variety has quickly taken root, greening this land and producing sweet fruits all the four seasons of the year.

Guava is harvested all year round

In Tan Yen, guava is grown in all communes, but mostly in Phuc Hoa (50 ha), Hop Duc (42 ha), Cao Thuong township (32 ha) and Cao Xa (17 ha). Strolling through some orchards, we can see guava trees only a meter high, on par with human chest, but laden with fruit.

Nguyen Quoc Cuong and his wife Tran Thi Han in Hoa Son residential area, Cao Thuong township own a field of eight sao (1 sao = 360sq.m) to grow guava. They were also the pioneers who brought the Taiwanese guava to the locality.

After harvesting, he calculates and prunes the branches to create a flowering and fruiting cycle at will. When the fruits are equal to a big toe, he skillfully wrapped them with white foam nylon to ensure good appearance and limit pests. Thanks to his correct calculations and proactive harvest, the guava quality is always guaranteed, winning consumers’ favour.

Now, around the year, his family has guava for sale. On average, each day he harvests 100kg of guava, sold for 12,000-15,000 VND per kg. The price is twice on the occasion of Lunar New Year (Tet) holiday and the guava is mostly delivered to regular customers. Han, Cuong's wife, also carries guava to Bac Giang city to sell. Over the past 7 years, except for expenses, the guava gardens have earned the family nearly 1 billion VND (42,900 USD).

Tran Dinh Long, residing in Lan Thinh village, Phuc Hoa commune is Director of the Tan Yen Guava Cooperative. From the initial 600 trees, his family now has more than 2,000 trees planted on three mau (1 mau = 3,600sq.m) of fields around the hill, yielding about 25 tonnes of fruit each year. In particular, Long makes adjustments for the harvest of more guava on the occasion of the Lunar New Year to increase product value. His guava is not harvested coinciding with the early-ripening lychee season in Phuc Hoa.

Building the brand of "Tan Yen guava"

Soil in Tan Yen is suitable for guava cultivation. The guava trees bear fruit four seasons in a year (two main and two secondary crops). Currently the district has expanded its guava area to 215 hectares, including more than 30 hectares under VietGAP standards. Each sao gives farmers an income of about 30-35 million VND (1,287-1,500 USD) per year.

At the beginning of 2019, the district People's Committee launched a project on developing the commodity guava cultivation area, with support given to models of 10 hectares or more. Accordingly, by the end of 2020, the district will grow guava on 90 hectares of river banks that are not suitable for other plants and build three concentrated guava areas meeting VietGAP standards in Phuc Hoa and Hop Duc communes and Cao Thuong township.

With the advantages of land and favorable weather for fruit tree development, and a Resolution on "Developing and improving the quality of fruit trees (including guava)" of the district Party Committee, Tan Yen has adopted incentives in terms of investment in science and technology, infrastructure and branding as well as changed farmers’ mindset in production of fruit trees in general and guava in particular.

On the other hand, despite just growing guava, Tan Yen people have quickly accessed new techniques to make guava trees produce fruit at will.

Guava has been asserting its position among fruit trees in Tan Yen. Through the hands of local farmers, the Taiwanese guava grown on this land has yellow green skin, white flesh, pear-like shape and few seeds. The fruit tastes crisp, sweet and fragrant. It produces fruit all year round.
