    A large purple-black grape with a good balance of refreshing acidity and sweetness. There is nourishment in the delicious part between the skin and the pulp, so it is recommended to eat with the skin on. Rich juice spreads throughout the mouth. Blessed with sunshine hours and a mild climate, Kagawa Prefecture grows high-quality grapes. Producers continue to raise their arms, such as selecting branches, making seedless grapes, and bagging. For this reason, the height of the tree has been adjusted to be low so that the grape fruits are in the line of sight. A house cultivator, a warmer, is what you need to make a good grape. While suffering from soaring fuels and climate change, they can squeeze their wisdom and continue working with care. The grapes that have started to grow grow over two months and reach their harvest. Vegetable producers who are familiar with delicious times and confidently ship Pione will be on the table from around the middle of June every year. In recent years, seedless "New Pione" is also popular. The bargain is around August when shipments increase in season.
