2. Tangerine Orchards(Cheju Island): Tangerine, a citrus fruit that grows on evergreen, broad-leaved shrud two to four meters tall, is a speciality of Cheju-do, the island province off the southwestern coast of the peninsula. Its erose and coriaceous leaves are either orbicular or ovate in shape. There are thorns in the axillae. White, five-petaled tangerine blossoms come into full bloom in early summer. The color of the fruit turns from green to reddish yellow as it repens in early winter. Its leathery, aromatic rind is called Chongpi when it is dried while still green or Chinpi when it is dried after it is ripe. Both Chongpi and Chinpi are used as a herb medicine. The tangerine orchards in Cheju-do amount to 795,500,000 sq km this year, which are expected to produce 15,400,000 kg of tangerines worth 3,700 million won. Tangerines, which are grown usually near farming houses, are also produced in Japan and India.
