  • Print
Xinhua, Harbin :
Heihe Port on the China-Russia border registered strong growth in fruit and vegetable exports to Russia in the first three quarters of this year, data from the port showed Monday.
As of September, a total of 57,500 tonnes of fruits and vegetables were exported from China to Russia via the port, up 39.56 percent year on year.
Potatoes, onions and turnips were the most popular vegetables, while apples, oranges and grapes were the top three fruits entering Russia.
Northeast China's Heilongjiang Province is a major fruit and vegetable exporter to Russia, as the country's winter is long and local produce cannot meet the demand.
