Eggplant has excellent adaptability, such as the fact that it always bears fruit when it blooms. Therefore, it seems that various sizes and shapes are made according to the climate and climate of each region and the taste of the land. Especially in the Tohoku region, the temperature that is suitable for growing eggplants is very short, so round eggplants and small eggplants that can be harvested relatively quickly are often cultivated, and long eggplants are gradually becoming the mainstay as they move southward. It tends to be produced as a variety. Eggplants cultivated in the west of Kansai and Tohoku are elongated with a length of about 20 to 30 cm. The fruit is soft and suitable for grilled eggplants and simmered dishes, and it seems that it is not very suitable for pickles. However, the ones cultivated in Tohoku seem to be suitable for pickles because the fruits are relatively tight. Typical varieties include “Chikuyo eggplant” and “Kokuyo eggplant”.
Yachiyo Town, Yuki District, Ibaraki Prefecture, is located in the western part of Ibaraki Prefecture, almost in the center of the Kanto Plain, and seems to have played a role as a source of vegetables mainly in the Tokyo metropolitan area for a long time. It is also a famous production area boasting the largest production in the prefecture where Chinese cabbage has been cultivated since the Taisho era. Spring Chinese cabbage, which is shipped from March to June every year, has fresh, soft leaves and a faint sweetness, and is highly trusted by consumers. Pears are also famous as a brand production area in Ibaraki prefecture, but as the agricultural population is declining year by year, I think the love of farmers who work hard every day to deliver delicious food to consumers is wonderful.
