The harvest of the wild water caltrop at Yangzhou’s Shaobo Lake kicked-off on Sept 11.

With September being the water caltrop harvest season, there are about 1,000-mu (66.7-hectare) wild water caltrop-growing areas in the wetland beside the west bank of the Shaobo Lake.

The harvested water caltrops should be thoroughly washed and gently hammered with a wooden stick, in order to remove their sharp pointed parts before being sold in the market.
