Toyonoka strawberries cultivated in the Hawai region are a hybrid of the Himiko and Harunoka breeds. Compared to previous hybrids, the Toyonoka hybrid has a stronger fragrance, a brighter lustre and exquisitely balanced sweetness and acidity. In winter, they are used to decorate Christmas cakes, with a fresh red colour that lasts until the beginning of summer.

羽合地域で栽培される「とよのか」いちごは、「ひみこ」と「はるのか」という2種類の品種をかけあわせてできた品種です。今までの品種に比べて、香りが高く、色つやも良く、甘味・酸味のバランスが絶妙です。冬にはクリスマスケーキを飾り、初夏までの食卓を鮮やかな赤で彩ります。
