Dekopon's image, which overturns the image that "big fruits have a great taste"
Kaji jumps into the charm!
Only selected first-class products are called decopons
The citrus fruits are brilliantly brilliant under the sky, which is completely dyed in winter color, without losing the cold. Mr. Kaji arrived at the "Mikan no Malkin" in the Shimogasai area of Takamatsu City. In the large greenhouse of about 40m, decopons are growing in full overflow. Immediately, Kaji asked the producer Fukuya about the basic knowledge of Decopon, and there was a startling fact! Dekopon is a registered trademark owned by the Federation of Kumamoto Fruit Agricultural Cooperatives, such as `` Shiranui, '' a variety that crosses Ponkan and Kiyomi. It seems that what is licensed only to members is shipped as "Decopon". "In other words, Decopon is a trademark, not a breed name!" Kaji-san is surprised at an unexpected episode.
The secret of sweetness was in storage
Dekopon's season is usually shipped from February to April, but Kagawa has a wide range of proprietary technologies that make it delicious from December to July. When asked the reason why the season is long, Mr. Fukuya smiled, "By firmly managing the temperature and storing it, the sugar content will increase more." If it's a long one, you can store it for about three months. In addition, the storage period is adjusted according to the quality of the finished decopons, and the unique features of cultivation farmers are also available. Kaji nodds deeply in Fukuya's love for Decopon.
Charming taste and deco, dynamic size
The attraction is the “deco” part, which is also the name. When you look at them, both of you smile unintentionally, "It's cute." Of course, it doesn't just look. Sugar content rises more easily than other citrus fruits, and the taste is outstanding. Dekopon seems to be sweeter and more delicious the bigger the redness. Kaji-san, staring at Dekopon, which is bigger than his palm, can't wait for the tasting, saying, "I'm sure the food will be perfect."
If you peel it off, you can pop the scent!
Heading to the storage room, Kaji-san's waiting tasting. Peel the skin out of the weight and deco parts that feel heavy in your hands. At that moment, the sweet and refreshing scent unique to Decopon spreads softly. Kaji-san is very satisfied before eating. And when you bomb a large bunch of bombs ... "The juice overflows like juice, and the fruit pops in your mouth!" There is a moderate acidity in the sweetness and the hand does not stop. “I want to create products that will impress you when you eat them,” Fukuya's thoughts seemed to reach Kaji.
