From the end of April to the beginning of May, French peaches ripen early, turn red on the hills and are sold in Bac Ha market in Vietnam's northwestern Lao Cai Province, attracting tourists with their sweet, crisp taste.

Nguyen Xuan Giang, head of the Agriculture and Rural Development Department of Bac Ha District, said that the whole district currently had about 70 hectares of French peaches, concentrated in Ta Chai, Na Hoi, and Ban Pho communes as well as Bac Ha town. French peaches are expensive, because they ripens earlier than traditional native peaches and are therefore easier to sell.
