Quang Kien said that plums are still in the first crop of the season and sour slightly, making him wince when eating, but “dipping with salt is very mouth-watering, eating forever is not boring”.
The early-season plums are crunchy but not too big and not as sweet as mid-season plums. In summer, this is the most typical and inviting fruit in Moc Chau.
The middle of the green space is dotted with red dots of ripe plums. Because this year’s flowers bloom slower than last year, plums also take longer to enter the main crop.

The price to visit the plum garden and take pictures is 20,000-30,000 VND depending on the garden. Early season plums cost 50,000-70,000 VND per kilogram.
