Tomatoes, melons and squash

CITY Garden, with both fruit and vegetables, is another cool place to cool down, pick some produce and have some farming fun.

The garden near Wusi Farm is one of the city's largest fruit and vegetable farms, growing more than 300 varieties.

It features giant pumpkins weighing more than 150 kilograms, watermelons hanging on the roof, hydroponic vegetables grown in containers on a wall, snake-shaped gourds and big tomato trees that can produce 20,000 pieces of fruit (some people call them veggies), or 1,000 kilograms a year.

The park covers 333 hectares, and 267 hectares are open for public picking.

There are large greenhouses containing interesting varieties and beautifully laid out vegetable gardens. There are shady places to sit down, chat and drink.

But there's a lot to be learned as well. The park exhibits high-tech agricultural equipment and explains modern growing methods that improve the soil and the plant environment.
