The space vegetable planting experiment conducted by the Shenzhou-16 crew, who have been in orbit for almost three months, has yielded a good harvest. In the video below, you can see the professional space cultivation device that was used. This system provides plants with all they need to thrive, with environmental conditions similar to those of the astronauts.
