In the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368), local residents under the eastern foot of the Tianmashan Hill planted cherry trees for trading. The cherries are famous for their big size, thin skin, sweet flesh and abundant juice.

In recent years, cherry trees have been cultivated in hilly areas and private courtyards in sufficient numbers to satisfy part of the local market demand.
