Dafu waxberry is produced in Dafu and Maji mountains of suburban areas in Wuxi, with 1000-year history of cultivation. Waxberry is native to southern Yangtze River and was named “Proper Fruit of the Southern Yangtze River” in ancient times. With thick flesh and small core, Dafu waxberry tastes sweet and sour. Its fruits have the effects of quenching thirst and promoting salivation. Wuxi people also like eating “waxberry soaked in liquor”. Once soaked in liquor and added with a few brown sugar, waxberry wine may help remove wet and check diarrhea as well as relieve heat and stand the cold.
