According to my beloved NAROPEDIA, the individual number is ヰ-26. It first bears fruit in 1947 and has black spot resistance (as lesions on leaves, petals, fruits, and branches. However, it seems that the small spots of black circles expand to form a concentric ring pattern at the beginning. The leaves are distorted like wavy because the growth of the lesions is stopped. It rarely develops on leaves that are older than a month. Black spots are formed on the petals.) It was first selected in 1949 because of its excellent fruit quality. The tree vigor is medium and the number of branches is rather high. The axillary flower buds are medium, and the short fruit branches are few. The flowering period is late in Japanese pears, and many petal flowers are mixed. It seems to be incompatible with “Nijisseiki Pear” and “Hosui Pear”, but with “Sinsui Pear” and “Shugyoku Pear”. The size of the fruit is about 250-300g, which is a little small, and the yield seems to be medium. The fruit shape is circular to flat, and the ball alignment is medium. It is a red pear with a neutral skin and is a wase variety harvested in the Kanto region in mid-August. The color of the flesh is white, the heart is small, and fruits with a large number of ventricles are mixed. The meat quality is dense and soft. It has a lot of sweetness, less sourness and astringency, and is juicy, and the quality is excellent. With the establishment of a pruning method mainly for axillary flower buds, it has become widespread, and cultivation has begun in red pear areas such as the Kanto region, and eventually spread nationwide. Currently, the most cultivated Japanese pear variety in Japan, which occupies one-third of the pear cultivation area.
The reason why JA Utsunomiya pears are reliable is that they are rigorously inspected using a fruit sorter that uses an optical sensor, which is rare for pears. As a result of introducing the fruit sorting system, it has become possible to accurately determine the presence or absence of Brix and internal pulp damage, which is a factor that consumers and producers can understand. Brix pure sugar ratio = (Brix by optical rotation meter / Brix by refractometer) × 100 (%). The international sugar content is a scale converted from the optical rotation, and the unit is ° Z.
It is famous that pears are also high quality and delicious, but I would like to introduce you to the excellent fruits that decorate your table. All producers of the JA’s Large ball tomatoes have obtained eco-farmer certification. In addition, it seems that the prefecture as a whole has been working on GAP (Agricultural Production Process Management) since 2007. In June 2008, the winter tomato specialty department acquired JGAP (third-party certification) certification, which is the first group certification in Japan as a tomato producing area. In addition, in order to produce high-quality tomatoes, it seems that the floor soil is traditionally cultivated by jointly scavenging the fallen leaves of the mountains in the area in winter and using the fallen leaves that have been aged for more than 3 years as humus soil. In July 2007, we decided to work on JGAP certification for wintering tomatoes, and based on JGAP’s 129 items of conformity criteria, we conducted a risk study for the safety of agricultural products and workers, and consideration for the surrounding environment, and greenhouse. It seems that they are cleaning up the workplace, posting at dangerous places, and recording work. In addition, we have created a manual that summarizes cultivation standards and rules regarding residual pesticides. Through these measures, GAP is practiced to avoid accidents, and it is possible to establish high-level cultivation management.
