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.
