The first Vietnam Fruit Festival, organised by People's Committee of Tien Giang Province, will run from April 19 to 24.
"Under the theme ‘Vietnam's Fruit in a Time of Integration', the festival organising board wants to show off the diversification and richness of fruit in Vietnam to local and foreign friends and tourists," said Tran The Ngoc, Chairman of the People's Committee of Tien Giang Province.
"The festival will be a chance to honour farmers, scientists, entrepreneurs and companies for their contribution to the development of fruit in Vietnam," Ngoc said.
More than 700 kiosks and art shows will display fruit products from around the country.
Aside from a number of events, there will be a scientific seminar on fruit market.
Vietnamese fruits are sold in 50 countries.
In the South, fruit is grown on 280,000ha – nearly 70% of the total fruit-farming area in the country.
