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!
