The tomatoes developed by Mr. Kazuo Miyata, the representative of the KEK group, have a rich richness and sweetness in addition to the original acidity, and are characterized by a crispy texture with little jelly quality. Large ball ultra-high sugar content tomatoes (9 degrees ± 0.5 degrees or more), which overturned the conventional wisdom of small fruit tomatoes (sugar content of about 7 degrees or more) and made possible by a proprietary cultivation method, are popular. Not only is it sweet, but it also has an exquisite balance with acidity and has a strong taste, and is supported by a wide range of people, from children to the elderly. March and April are the peak of shipping, and customers can see the direct sales office (Iwase: Shimoizumi, Sakuragawa City, Ibaraki Prefecture) from outside the prefecture, and they are making good online orders from all over the country and exporting to overseas.
We have independently developed a fruit sorter with an optical sensor [Itamars: registered trademark], which makes it possible to sort tomatoes without rolling them. At the same time, the optical sensor sorts out the shape and sugar content of all tomatoes, and the staff carefully checks each gem. It seems that all ones are treated like men and women.
We have adopted a uniquely developed cultivation method (trade secret) that has been researched and improved every day for about 20 years. It enables large ball, ultra-high sugar content, and multi-stage harvesting, which was previously said to be impossible. Thorough management is carried out to change the amount of irrigation and fertilizer concentration depending on the condition, temperature and humidity of tomatoes that change daily. The farm is banned from shoes and seems to be kept clean at all times.
