Hida ippon futo negi (fat leek)

This leek is cultivated mainly in Takayama City, and the origin is said to be former Hozue Village which has been merged with Takayama City. When exposed to frost, the leek becomes much softer and its viscosity and sweetness increase. Characterized by its thickness, strong sweet taste, and softness of the white root as well as leaves, it is used for hot pots and local cookery called “Hohba miso” paste.
