Short Fruit Trees Widely Cultivated

Pyongyang, July 11 (KCNA) — Short apricot, peach and plum trees newly bred by the United Fruit-growing Corporation in Pyongyang are bearing fruit.

In recent years, several work-teams under the corporation have cultivated such short fruit trees to increase fruit output.

An apricot weighs 50 grams, 70 grams to the maximum.

The feature of these fruit trees is to bear fruits from the year following their plantation. The 1.5-meter long peach tree also produces fruit.

The short fruit trees need one third of agricultural chemicals and one fifth of manpower compared with tall fruit trees.

The fruit trees bred by Bachelor Yun Won Jong are economically profitable. They can be cultivated in parks, pleasure grounds, gardens and flowerpots for ornament.
