Pear producers listen directly to consumer demands and work hard to produce crops to meet those needs. Consumers can also enjoy locally sourced, safe, fresh, high-quality ingredients. In this way, the fact that producers and consumers are in close contact with each other seems to be the greatest characteristic of agriculture in Narita. It is clear that both producers and consumers are refining and growing better crops.
Chiba Prefecture is a suitable place for pear cultivation, which is blessed with soil and weather conditions. Narita is also included. Due to the warm climate surrounded by the sea on three sides, it seems that the flowers bloom at the earliest time in the Kanto region and the harvest time is also early. The main variety of “Kosui pear” has been produced in various areas in the prefecture in early August, which is the middle of summer, and the time when it is hot and you want to eat pears overlaps with the peak harvest period, so Chiba prefecture has been around for a long time. Pears have been said to be delicious. Volcanic ash soil, which is abundant in Chiba prefecture, is suitable for pear cultivation because it has strong fertilizer power and good drainage, and it seems that the tree grows healthy and healthy.
Proper use of pesticides, not only recording the history of pesticide application, but also covering the entire pear garden with a fine mesh net to prevent the invasion of pests, and filling the pest garden with the female odor of pests called pheromones, making it impossible to mate. In this way, we are producing delicious pears by making various efforts such as preventing the outbreak of pests. Generally, the sugar content is higher when the fruit is also exposed to light. The fruits become sweeter and sweeter in the early summer sun. Furthermore, compared to remote production areas, it is possible to keep the trees in a state close to ripe, so it seems that pears with good taste can be harvested.
