Kagawa cucumbers are produced year-round in the open fields and in houses, but at their peak from summer to autumn. Summer and autumn cucumbers are said to be of high quality in mountainous areas where the temperature difference between day and night is large. In recent years, the main focus has been “white seeds” with thin skin and crispness, and the whole fruit is green.

  • Freshness is the cucumber of life. There is tension on the whole, and something that hurts when the wart is sharp and touches is fresh. Not only does it make salad, add Kanayamaji miso, and enjoy the crisp and fresh taste, but it also tastes great when boiled or fried. In addition, as a pickle such as pickled mustard or pickled beer, Kagawa's dining table is always served.

    Cucumber with a beautiful fresh green color is a very useful ingredient for cooking, such as raw food, stir-fry, and pickles. Tsumura grows cucumbers throughout the year, in spring, summer, autumn, and house cultivation. Cucumber cultivation is very sensitive to the weather, and if rain or cloudy weather continues, it can cause flowering, fruit drop, disease and affect the yield. Therefore, we pay close attention to the weather and weather conditions, soil temperature and wetness, and manage cultivation. In the past, Kagawa Prefecture introduced a nutrient solution soil cultivation that no one had done before, and was a pioneer in introducing a cucumber cultivation system. The cucumber nurtured by Tsumura who is calm in dealing with bad conditions such as the weather and is afraid to challenge new things has a reputation for being fresh and very delicious. Why not try a delicious cucumber in a cucumber field surrounded by beautiful nature, such as the mountains and rivers of Haedori.
