Red peppers in Qinzhou help increase villagers' incomes
The harvest season of conical red pepper has begun with the arrival of early summer.
More than 500 workers have been picking, sorting, and packaging peppers every day at a 500-mu (0.07-hectare) pepper farm in Qinzhou's Qinbei district, Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region.
Workers receive 1 yuan ($0.15) each for every 500 grams of pepper pick, and usually earn 100 to 200 yuan a day, helping them increase their incomes.
