The park covers an area of about 3.5 square kilometers in the Pukchong area of South Hamgyong Province.
Its purpose is to build a modern agricultural development park with a food production cycle based on fruit farming, combined fruit-processing and stockbreeding.
The area has sufficient conditions to this end, as its geographical, climatic and soil features are suited to the cultivation of fruits.
It is planned to widely cultivate and export Pukchong apple, which is in great demand in Russia, Europe and South East Asia for its peculiar taste and good storability, and to develop the fruit-processing industry in Pukchong Fruit-processing Factory and the Pukchong Fruit Machine Factory with the fruits produced in the surrounding farms as raw materials.
A plan is also under consideration to develop processing industry by making effective use of such medicinal plants as Rhizoma Atractylodis, Herba Epimedii and Radix Ligustici, such edible herbs as bracken, platycodon, Codonopsis lanceolata and Armillaria edodes produced in the surroundings of the park, and marine products of the East Sea of Korea.
