ume

This specialty fruit from the Togo area grows to a five centimeter diameter oval shaped large plum. Between middle and late March, the flowers turn the ume orchards light pink and perfume the air with a sweet soft fragrance. These large plums are popular in food processing, and are shipped out in June. In recent years with the boom in health foods, ume juice has been produced as well, and is loved by people of all ages.

東郷地域の特産で、果実は大きいもので直径5cmほどになり、だ円形で肉厚の大玉の梅です。3月中旬から下旬にかけて薄いピンクの花で梅園は色付き、甘くやわらかい香りが漂います。出荷時期は6月、大玉は加工用として人気があり、近年、健康食ブームから梅ジュースなどに加工され、子どもから年輩まで幅広く愛されています。
