The orange, independently cultivated by the farm in the 1970s, has a thin peel, juicy pulp, and a sweet, slightly sour taste. It was the runner-up for The State Scientific and Technological Progress Award in 1987.

The Hongjiang Orange was registered as a trademark in October 1986 after being approved by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, and was selected as a Guangdong Famous Trademark in 1992.

This year's CATF was co-hosted by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs and the Hunan Provincial People's Government. More than 4,000 enterprises participated, exhibiting more than 16,000 different products.
