What are the attractions of Yantai Apple? Yantai has a long history of apple cultivation and is the earliest place in China to cultivate apples. Apple was introduced to Yantai from Western countries in 1871, and after 150 years of development, Yantai is considered to be the birthplace of modern apple in China. Located at 37° north latitude, Yantai features a warm temperate monsoon sub-humid continental climate, making it a prime location for apple growing. The city is moderate in rainfall, adequate in light and rainfalls, and rich in soil minerals. The apple produced here is crisp, thin-skinned and sweet.

In 2020, the total area of apple planting in Yantai is 2.8 million mu and the total output is 6.06 million tons, accounting for 72% and 63% of the province's apple planting area and output, accounting for 9% and 14% of the country's total area and output.

With a brand value of 14.5 billion yuan, Yantai Apple has been the top fruit brand in China for 12 consecutive years.
