Mailang Jhai (Mai's Abode)

(1) Summary:

During the late years of Emperor Daoguang's reign, Guo Yao (some may call him Guo Tinghui), a resident of Mailang Zhai located at the Wangzu Miaojiao (Ancestral Temple corner) took some pomelos from his hometown in Anding and planted them in his garden. After several years, the trees flowered and produced some fruits, which not only inherited the original advantages of the parent trees, but also offered a unique flavor characterized by a softer texture and sweeter juice. The Governor General of Min-Guang (Fujian and Guangdong provinces) thus offered these Madou Wundan pomelos as a tributary gift for the Cing Emperor, an act that helped to fuel its widespread fame. When the Japanese occupied Taiwan, Guo's pomelos were selected as Imperial Tributary Pomelos for the Japanese Emperor, further cementing its international reputation.
Modern Madou resembles a large fruit orchard. Pomelo orchards and the fragrant aroma of pomelo blossoms create an atmosphere that serves as the perfect retreat for visitors.
