Tanekura beni cabu (red turnip)

Its main cultivation area is today’s Hida City, and the name was given after the original area of cultivation. Home seed-raising has been practiced over a long time whereby only quality produce has been selected to develop “Tanekura beni kabu” or the red turnip of the Tanekura area as it is called today. In the local community, “nagazuke” or long period pickling is practiced in which the turnips are pickled without removing leaves. It is characterized by its vivid reddish purple color, conic shape and long rachis.
○ Main cultivation area

Recommended with mayonnaise.
But be careful not to become addicted!
"Sawa" shop is famous for offering "Bokkani" or sweet-boiled river fish such as sweetfish, mountain trout or spotted trout. "Tanekura beni kabura" was created to preserve the local traditional vegetable. Unlike the well-known "red turnip pickles", it has a distinct sourness and can be enjoyed as it is or chopped and added to fried rice.
