Every spring, plum blossom lightens the entire Moc Chau plain with its bright white. Walking through the plum garden will make you lost in wonder land.
What is the best time to visit Moc Chau plain?
If you want to immerse in the white of plum blossom flowers, spring would be perfect time to travel. Plums never bloom alone, once they feel the weather makes it time to show their pure white flowers, they seem to one another for the blooming. Thus, the white quickly covers a large part of Moc Chau making it a stunning land that lures anyone who ever see it. This usually happens in January or February, if a year is colder than usual, the flowers will delay their arrival until around March. These flowers could only be seen in around 2-3 weeks, after that they will fall off to give place for the baby fruits.
The flower season delivers abnormal beauty that satisfies visitors’ eyes, fruit season in the April will feed both eyes and stomach literally. Each cluster of ripe purple plum in the sunshine invites visitors to come, pick and enjoy the taste of Northwest nature.
Every year Moc Chau provides the whole country with thousands of plum, the fruit has made it name a famous brand of the place. Plums are tasty however we process it. Newly fresh picked plums taste the best when they go with chili pepper salt, salt, chili and pepper combine with sour-sweat plums would make you salivate even imagine about it, let alone having the combination in your mouth.
If you’re not a fan of sour, plums can be saved for making jam or dried plum. The half sour and sweat fruit could not be more perfect for a jar of jam or a pack of dried fruit saved for the boring days later. Or, as Vietnamese usually do, plum syrup or alcohol is also not a bad idea at all.
Moc Chau now is a place of tourism and local inhabitants do have great business acumen. They are now opening the plum garden for visitors. Grasp an entry ticket, you are able to discover the garden, take photo shoots or whatever you want as long as no damage caused to trees. Every harvesting season, you can pay a ticket to eat as much as you love the freshest plums picked by yourself from the trees, and if you are interested, you can play a role as a farmer busy picking plums. At the end of the harvesting, garden owner even pay you for the plums that you picked. What is the better way to live like a local person?
