Taipei, Aug. 23 (CNA) An association of famers in southern central Taiwan's Yunlin County exported 20,000 kilograms of pomelos to China Friday, its first shipment of the fruit to the Chinese market. A total of four containers of pomelos grown in the county's Douliou City, known for their thin skin and juicy sweetness, were shipped to China.

Yunlin Magistrate Su Chih-fen said the farmer's group will continue to expand exports of the fruit overseas, adding that the county is also in talks with China to export mandarins, guavas, pitayas and other fruit to the Chinese market. Although Su is a member of the major opposition Democratic Progressive Party, which is more wary of China compared with the ruling Kuomintang, the county, known for its agricultural products, has been seeking to expand its exports into the Chinese market in recent years.
