Grand Festival of Citron Valley

Goheung of Jeonnam is ‘Citron Heaven.'  Goheung produce citrons in 425㏊ of land cultured by 2,000 farm households.  Goheung is Korea’s best citron producer taking 1/5 of Korea’s total production.  

Therefore, many tourists plan to visit Goheung to enjoy the attractive scent of citrons every year.  At the Citron Park of Pungyang-myeon, Goheung, you can always see many lovers spending time together along the hiking course of the citron farm and families and friends taking pictures.  

The citrons are characterized by yellow color and ugly appearance.  However, they are very popular for medical and table uses.  They are also used for incences for the unique scent.  In particular, Goheung Citrons have excellent scent, color and taste as they are produced in the clean and clear natural environment.  

Furthermore, they contain 10 times more calcium than apples, pears or bananas and 3 times more vitamins than lemon or orange.  With their carcinostatis substances, they are great for anti-aging and preventing adult diseases.  They also perform antibacterial actions for allergies or infections to improve the body constitutions and highly resist diseases.  

Greeting the harvest of citrons, we hold a festival full of citron scent.
