All year round vegetables include lettuce, cabbage, cauliflower, radish, carrot, chinese cabbage, kailan, onions, potato and others.  All year round flowers grown and sold widely throughout the country include gladiolus, aster, chrysanthemum, star flowers.

School summer holidays run from March to May, covering the hottest months, as well as the Festival of Thingyan (usually in April).

Although Pyin Oo Lwin is often referred to as the 'Flower City of Myanmar', it is equally important as one of Myanmar's main agricultural centres.  The climate benefits not only horticultural and agricultural produce; Pyin Oo Lwin has one of the highest human longevity rates in Myanmar!  It's also well known for its silkworm breeding industry, its traditional medicine research centre, and its coffee production.
