Minami Hida fuji gaki (persimmon)

This persimmon variety is cultivated in Gero City today. Its origin is unknown, but it began to be widely popularized around 1930 by a cultivator who gave instructions on how to grow it. It is a semi-bitter kind which is harvested from late October to early November. The fruit grows to be in a square-like shape with black spots on the skin, weighing between 300 and 350 grams each.

Using the choicest persimmons harvested from trees aged over 90 years.
We use young trees of 20-30 years of age for fresh consumption. For dried persimmons, we harvest only from trees aging over 90 years. The difference is comparable to that between farmed and wild tuna fish. We are the only local producer, and we ship our products to all over Japan.
