(The Chinese yam grown in Higashi Mokoto)
This Chinese yam is compact and has a smooth texture. It is shipped not only to Sapporo and Kushiro markets, but to the Kansai area as well, and is very popular as Higashi Mokoto Brand because of its strong stickiness and consistent color.
(Trophy 1066)
This is grown in Kamitokoro, Kitami city and Kunneppu town. This was named Trophy because its tip is thin and it looks like a trophy. This is grown in the soil in which ''Seaweeds Mineral'', which is fermented organic materials with many microbes, is used. Because this is very sticky and its cells are elaborate, you can enjoy eating it more when it is grinded and Tororo (grated yam) is made.
