Strange job: “Cut” the tree to get water, climb the tree to knock durian fruit
Planting trees is not only for fruit and timber. Dan Viet newspaper said that in Vietnam, you can make money by… brewing wine in trees, such as specialty wine taken from the Doak tree.
Residents of Dak Plinh commune (Kong Chro district, Gia Lai) said that when taking Doak wine, they have to choose trees with a lifespan of more than 15 years. The distance from the tree to the stream bank is also one of the factors that determine the deliciousness of the wine, the ideal distance for the Doak tree to produce the best wine flavor is about 30m from the stream bank. When harvested properly, this plant will produce a white wine, with a bit of pungent taste, a strong aroma and absolutely no intoxication for the drinker.
Phong Dien district (Can Tho city) is in full bloom of durian harvest. The Can Tho newspaper said that the productivity of this year’s durian crop increased compared to the same period last year, so durian knockers (also known as knockers and cutters) are busier.
The talent of those who “knock” durian is to assess the age of the fruit right from the moment when it has not yet smelled the aroma. At gardeners, the price of workers “knocking” durian ranges from 1-3 million VND/person/day. The salary paid for the job of “typing” durian is high, but few can follow the job.
Three types of strange branches cause a market fever
In addition to traditional flowers, consumers are also on the lookout for unique indoor plants that can last for up to a month. In particular, imported stone pine is the most unique branch on the flower market today.

Besides stone pine, the flower market in Hanoi appears plum branches from Moc Chau, priced quite cheaply from only a few dozen to several hundred thousand dong/bundle. The plum branch has both fruit and young leaves, and the price is reasonable, so it is attractive to buyers.
At the end of 2021, the market has a “craze” for planting forest cherry branches. Fancy forest cherry branches are sold in bundles for only 120,000 VND/bundle. Forest cherry branches are popular because of their slender shape, when planted, they exude the wild look of nature, not drying like many other flowers.
