It seems that Abe Farm, which created Abe Hakuto Peach, was originally a farmer specializing in rice cultivation. It seems that the reason why he started making peaches was that he started to think about alternative crops because the mechanization of paddy rice cultivation shortened the work time but the cost became high.
Nanbu Town, Hirakawa City, Sannohe Town, and Hirosaki City, which represent Japan and are loved by everyone, seem to occupy more than 66% of the cultivated area in Aomori Prefecture. Surrounded by the sea and mountains, consisting of the Sanhachi area (seven cities, towns and villages (Hachinohe City, Sannohe Town, Gonohe Town, Takko Town, Nanbu Town, Hashikami Town, Shingo Village) located on the prefectural border with Iwate Prefecture in the southeastern part of the country since ancient times. It has been cultivated mainly in the area full of nature, but in recent years, it is located in the central and southern areas (located in the southwestern part, Hirosaki City, Kuroishi City, Hachinohe City, Nishimeya Village, Fujisaki Town, Oogi Town, and Inakadate Village. I heard that the cultivation area is increasing mainly in 2 towns and 2 villages in the city). In addition to picking the leaves around the fruit so that it can be exposed to the sun, a reflective sheet for coloring is spread in the field to color the bottom of the fruit, creating a wonderful peach that shows the commitment of apple farmers.

Abe Hakuto Peach seems to be about 1 kg in size, but it is also a fact that it takes time to cultivate. Due to its delicate nature, it is manually sacked one by one so that it will not be scratched, and instead of simply tying the mouth of the bag, a special bag called a triangular bag completely prevents rainwater from entering. It seems to keep in mind. Due to the long cultivation period, it may be necessary to cross the typhoon season before the harvest, and the difficulty seems to be not trivial. No wonder it’s more difficult than you might think, such as natural disasters, climate change, and pest insect control.
