Dark reddish purple waxberries grown on the mountains in Shushan village, Suzhou New District, are ready to satisfy foodies with their refreshing sweet and sour flavor.

A basket of waxberries, with lovely looks and appetizing flavors, is available on the market and ready for foodies to enjoy. Shushan villagers have grown the sweet and sour berries for more than 400 years, and historical records say that Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) favored Shushan waxberries when touring East and South China.
