Changqi Village (Chinese: 长碛; pinyin: Chángqìcūn) is a village in Anjiang (安江) (formerly in the southeastern part of Longtian Township (龙田)), Hongjiang City, Huaihua, which is located in the western part of Hunan Province, China.[1][2] As of 2014 it had a population of about 1,400.[3] Most of the villagers share the same surname, Duan, and there is an ancestral shrine specifically for all the people surnamed Duan.[4]

Agriculture[edit]

The village is the origin of what eventually became the Qianyang Bingtang orange cultivar (黔阳冰糖橙), which is a famous product of Hongjiang. The predecessor of what was eventually cultivated into today's Qianyang Bingtang orange was discovered in the 1960s by Changqi village resident Duan Tianlong (段天郎).[5]
