These stunning aerial images reveal a sea of persimmons in Quanzhou city, China.

Persimmon production is a vital way of life for the villagers in the Fujian province.

Every year, locals use the strong rays of the sun to dry their fruits out before selling them at market.

Traditional methods of drying the fruit can take much longer, sometimes even up to 50 days.

In Chinese, dried persimmons are called Shibing and they are a very popular treat.

The persimmon skins are even used and fed to livestock so that nothing is wasted.

While they are common in China and many countries across East Asia, the fruit is gaining popularity in the U.K., as well as in the U.S.
