Speaking of autumn taste, persimmons. Above all, Kagawa's Fuyu persimmon is big and delicious! It is a specialty product that many locals have a strong following and those who know it.
This time, Kaji visited a toy persimmon farm in Ayagawa-cho. In the autumn morning haze, the large orange persimmon is visible because of the green leaves.
100-year history of Fuyu persimmon
"This year is a great harvest," said Mr. Kawaoka, a persimmon farmer, who smiles and grows on a green persimmon tree. Kaji asks, "A lot of fruits are growing. And when did the cultivation of Fuyu persimmons begin?" Kawaoka says, "The trees around here are said to be" one hundred years old trees. " eh! Kaji looks around without thinking. "It has a long history. Has the way of making changed since that time?"
Features of Kagawa's Fuyu persimmon
"It's been a long time, but the cultivation method is simple. Just pruning and raising fertilizer," says Kawaoka. You can see that it is being done. "What are the features of Kagawa's Fuyu Kaki?" "I'm growing up with sincerity," she says.
When should we eat Fuyu persimmon?
Fuyu persimmon is harvested from late October to early December, but according to Kawaoka, the best time is around November 10 to December. "The difference in temperature during the day is great, and it's best before it gets frosty," he says. Kawaoka nodded to Kaji, saying, "Farmers harvest each persimmon for the best time." "It's best when you're in the store, so it's best to eat it as soon as you buy it," he said.
Sweetness and moderate crunchiness
The next heading is JA Ayaka southern collection site. Mr. Hirata of JA Kagawa Prefecture brought the proud Fuyu persimmon. "A lot of juice is soft," says Mr. Kaji, who is excited. "Sweet! It's sweet right from the bite!" "It's so sweet that you can do it," says Hirata. It seems that Fuyu persimmons are shipped mainly to supermarkets in the prefecture, and some are shipped outside the prefecture. At the time of the interview, boxing for gifts was also performed. "I think the gifts will be very delightful. I'd like people in and outside the prefecture to eat them," said Kaji, who has become a fan of Toru Persimmon.
