Launch of speciality Japanese strawberries and products
· 1 February 2021
The Government of Saitama Prefecture introduces four prized strawberry varietals.
Indulge in luxury Japanese strawberries and other strawberry products from the Saitama Prefecture in Singapore for the first time, boasting four of the most renowned, super high-grade strawberry varieties – Yayoi-hime, Beni-hoppe, Tochi-otome and Amarin.
The strawberries are cultivated in Yoshimi-Town’s rich and fertile soil in greenhouses which provide an abundance of sunshine all day long, all year round. Humidity and temperature are also meticulously controlled, so the harvested strawberries are fully ripe, delightfully sweet and gorgeously red with a high nutritional value. The strawberries are typically purchased directly from the farms, or from Tokyo’s specialty stores and supermarkets, and are rarely exported internationally. The Amarin, in particular, is grown only by a few farmers and is very hard to procure outside Japan.
In addition to the fresh strawberries, the Saitama Prefecture will also be unveiling a series of strawberry products. These include the famous Nagatoro Fukushima Farm’s Strawberry Pudding, and the Yuki Ichigo, a baumkuchen layered with strawberry puree.
Other premium products such as Nagatoro Strawberry Cider, Strawberry Jam, Strawberry Sauce and Strawberry Butter will also be showcased.
