Local fruit growers sell the fresh loquat at a farm bazaar, in Shexian County, east China's Anhui Province, June 3, 2010. As one of the country's major loquat producing areas, Shexian County has witnessed a sleet season early this year, which postpones the normal ripening and plucking of the loquat fruits for half a month, and push the loquat price to hike at 10 RMB yuan per kg on average, almost double than last year.
