Over five hectares of peach trees in an experimental garden in Yinchuan, capital city of north-western China's Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, are seeing the full bloom in January, the coldest month in most of China's northern cities.
The nectarine trees, one member of the peach family, are contra-seasonal, the Xinhua news agency reported on Monday.
The pink flowers have drawn large numbers of local citizens to visit and feel a sense of spring.
