Affirmation of "Green Dragon"

From an ordinary fruit more than 30 years ago, dragon fruit was first planted by the people of Ham Thuan Nam district, then widely planted in the other province’s localities, and cared for in an organic way, so the fruit quality also gradually increased. Dragon fruit becomes the main crop of the province. The demand for this fruit is increasing day by day; many users enjoy this fruit because of its benefits such as controlling body heat and health with many vitamins, fiber, and mineral salts.
