The tomatoes grown in Kitami
This variety was presented in 1985. Until then, it had been common to make tomatoes re-ripen after ripening; subsequently, they succeeded in harvesting and distributing fully ripened tomatoes. Today, there are more than twenty kinds of Momotaro varieties, and they occupy over 70% of the tomatoes in Japan. Of course, the main brand in Okhotsk is Momotaro. In Kitami, the Kamitokoro area has been growing tomatoes for over thirty?five years. Since Kitami is a basin, the area gets a lot of sunshine and has an extreme temperature difference. Therefore, sweet and thick tomatoes can be grown. A tomato cultivation group established the cultivation criteria. They have also received the Hokkaido(YES! clean) designation.
