Gaoxie waxberry acquired its name from its place of origin, Gaoxie in the island proper of Zhoushan. It has an ancient history of cultivation. As early as 1298, in the “National Records of Dedechang” edited by Feng Fuzong, the judge of Changguo Canton (present Zhoushan), Gaoxie waxberry was classified as “the second fruit specialty in the Buddhist kingdom and fairyland”.   

Gaoxie waxberry has seven varieties, namely, late rice waxberry, red waxberry, white and solid waxberry, lichi waxberry, black-leave waxberry and crystal waxberry, of which the late rice waxberry is the top grade.

Gaoxie waxberry is not only liked by all for its beautiful color and fresh taste, but also makes excellent material for medical use among the folk. It can be taken after being immersed in white liquor. It has effects of eliminating sputum, relieving summer heat, keeping out the cold, relieving diarrhea, promoting production of body fluid, refreshing and relieving fatigue. The modern scientific research believes that waxberry contain several fibrin, which can stimulate the wiggling of intestine and discharge carcinogen out of human body, thus having the effect of cancer preventing. Therefore, there has been a saying that “waxberries can treat all sorts of illness” in Zhoushan all through ages.
