Farmers in Xiaoyangpo village of Jishan county, Shanxi province, have been reaping a rich harvest of persimmons recently.
They are busy gathering the fruit and drying them for snacks, which will become sweeter after exposure to the sun for two or three weeks.
Persimmons have been placed around virtually every house in the village, presenting a charming harvest scene. The delicacy has become an important source of income for local farmers and will be sold across the country.
