Smoke Tree from JA Ehime Chuo

live_20190610_01

Today we are offering Smoke Tree (Cotinus coggygria) from JA Ehime-Chuo in Ehime prefecture.


At JA Ehime-Chuo, the growers never harvest Smoke Trees in an early (stiff) stage, but wait for them to be as fluffy as they can. Plus, the growers try their best to enhance the natural color of them like white or green.

From now on, the supply of Smoke Trees is expected to continue towards the end of June with the variety of “Red Fur” and “Peach Fur” mainly, and some Green types too. Later on, we will be receiving Smoke Trees from Yamagata and Aomori prefectures as the production area goes up to the north of Japan.

Smoke Tree has been recently getting a lot popular overseas especially in other Asian countries.
Please don’t miss these early-summer items from JA Ehime-Chuo that are of great quality!

Big-Bloom Callistephus from Mitoyo

live_20190522_01
Today we would like to offer Big-Bloom Callistephus from Mitoyo Eino Center in Kagawa prefecture.

We have been receiving their Callistephus since the beginning of May just as any other year.  In Mitoyo there are five of the growers that grow big-bloom types, and fifteen in total including the ones that grow other types such as “Macaron” and “Arrange Star”. All of the fifteen growers are dedicated to supply us Callistephus almost all year around.

Among the big-bloom types, the leading variety is “Mash Salmon” and other trial varieties like blue ones have also been supplied during this year. The growers are ‘relaying’ the production in order to supply them constantly till around the end of October.

Since big-bloom types of Callistephus tend to overly open from the center of their flower (which degrades the quality), the growers at Mitoyo Eino Center make special treatments depending on the season and whether they are spray or standard. We would appreciate it if you make a good use of this well-cared flower.
