Yan’an is a perfect location for planting apples because the soil, altitude, illumination and huge difference in temperature between day and night are much helpful for apples to accumulate sugar.
The apples are big, bright, and sweet. Most of the 70 breeds are of high quality, such as Fuji, New Red Star, Marshal (the brand names of the apples) and the like. The Luochuan apples (those produced in Luochuan County) once won the first prize in a national apple competition, and its quality score is better than the best apple of America. Now the Yan’an apples and the apple juices and other related products have become quite popular at home and abroad.
