In recent years, Shine Muscat has become popular all over the country. The main production areas in the prefecture are Mitoyo, Takamatsu and Ayagawa, and grapes are highly evaluated by retailers outside the prefecture because high-quality Shine Muscat is shipped. One grain is large, 1-12 g, and has a large volume. The sugar content is as high as 14 degrees or more, and many people seem to give it as a gift. In addition, the lack of seeds and thin skin make the crisp texture one of the reasons for its popularity. Yano, the producer, says that he loves it because he can eat it without any discomfort even if he throws it into his mouth with the skin on. Enjoy the refreshing sweetness of Shine Muscat, which comes out from early July to early September.
