In 1990, ripe varieties of tomatoes became widespread nationwide, so in order to be selected as a production area, “differentiated products based on commitment” that meet the needs of consumers who prefer high sugar content as well as ripe taste. Seems to have been sought. Therefore, Gunma Prefecture is developing a high-sugar tomato cultivation method by root zone-restricted cultivation using a root-blocking permeable sheet. That is, plants planted in soil grow their roots in the vertical and horizontal directions. In addition, the roots absorb the water that has permeated the soil due to irrigation and rainfall. It is a cultivation method that physically and spatially restricts the movement and function of such roots. In addition, because it is cultivated by adjusting the amount of irrigation, it is small and the yield is less than half that of conventional large ball tomatoes, but once eaten, it grows into a delicious tomato that is addictive.
Designated vegetable production areas are designated in order to systematically promote the modernization of production and shipment of designated vegetables based on the Vegetable Production and Shipment Stabilization Law (Law No. 103 of July 1, 1966) and to stabilize the shipment. At the request of the prefectural governor, the Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries has designated what is deemed necessary to form as a collective production area for vegetables. As of May 7, 2021, it seems that 890 production areas have been designated nationwide and 124 production areas have been designated in the Tohoku region. Confirmed that winter and spring tomatoes are designated in Isesaki City.
Taking advantage of the blessed sunshine of flat land in winter and spring, and the cool climate of mountainous areas in summer and autumn, we ship the best products every season. The tomatoes carefully cultivated by the producers have a soft scent and the flesh does not crumble easily, so anyone can enjoy eating them. It is delicious as it is or when heated, so it can be used for a variety of purposes. A good choice seems to be that the shoulders of this excellent produce are stretched and hardened, and that it is heavy.
