There are fruit farms in the Okhotsk region that grow strawberries, cherries, plums, apples, pears and grapes.
The Ishikawa Fruit Farm was established in Kitami in the sixth year of Taisho (1994) and began growing fruit a few years later. This farm grows cherries, the main variety being Nanyo (South Sun). This cherry is quite large and has consistent color, texture and sweetness. Today, most farms use artificial pollination. However, Ishikawa Fruit Farm cultivates their products using natural pollination.
At Ginga no Sato (Home of the Galaxy) Berry Farm, they increased the blackberries that naturally grew around their farm. Today, they grow 300 blackberries, 470 black currants, 170 Blue?berried honeysuckles and 72 gooseberry black currants. The fruits that are harvested are processed into foods, like jam.
