Nanfeng tangerine: The Nanfeng tangerine has been cultivated for more than 1300 years.[7] During the Kaiyuan era, Nanfeng became a major citrus producing area, with an output of more than 100 million jin (110 million lbs, 50 million kg) per year, and the citrus produced was classified as a royal tribute. Also known as the "tiny tangerine", the Nanfeng tangerine is small, 2–4 cm in diameter, with thin skin, sweet juice, a rich aroma, golden color, and is nutrient-rich."[8][9] In the 1950s, Joseph Stalin tasted the tangerine and praised it as "the king of oranges". In 1962, the tangerine was awarded one of the top ten orange varieties in the country, and in 1986 and 89, was rated as the national high-quality fruit. At the 99 China International Farmer's Expo, it was rated as a famous brand product. In 1995, Nanfeng county was named by the Ministry of Agriculture as "the hometown of the Chinese citrus".[7]

Previously known as salt furnaces, they were renamed Nanfeng mud stoves in 1953. The raw material that is used is viscous clay, and the production process includes refining, compacting, planing, polishing, baseting, chassis, packaging, and the like.
