I went to strawberry picking the other day.
There were several strawberry brands, and I tasted test them. I visited the farm Holty Kaiduka this time.
Google said that the farm is in Kasukabe where is around 1 hour from Tokyo, but in fuct, it took over 2 hours. Of cause I called then before I was late. *This is very important as Japanese culture. however, they were so kind and welcomed me as same as sweetness of strawberry.
I tried 4 types of strawberry.
To be honest, I couldn’t find difference by their appearance. I personally liked Yayoi-hime and Tochi-otome. but, it would be depends on the location or how strong sunlight there was. other varietes were sweeter in some places. So, I researched it.
When it comes average sugar content, Yotsu-boshi is winner. I also searched prices of each, and they are almost same.
I found out that by eating and comparing.
- An environment is more important than brands.
- Tochi-otome has intense flavor and sweetness. so eat as they are.
- Yayoi-hime is good for fruits sandwiches.
See you again.
