About Mitsurokka - Semi-Dried Kaki (Persimmon)
Kaki is a seasonal delicacy in Japan, during the autumn months. It is eaten raw, but also traditionally been peeled and dried. We save them for New Year's feast and put on top of our Kagami-mochi (decorative mochi cake).
Dried Kaki becomes soft and very sweet. There are many way to make dried Kaki, and you can see some products with white sugar covering the whole of the fruit, some becoming quite firm with a date-like chewiness, and some, like the product we are offering, soft, tender and retaining some freshness.
Kaki is full of health benefitting vitamins and minerals, and is an ideal gift for fruit lovers and health conscious friends.
Yamanashi Prefecture is just an hour and a half from Tokyo, home of Mount Fuji. It is known for its beautiful landscapes, pure waters, and it delicious fruits. Yamanashi is the top producing prefecture for grapes, peaches, and plums, and is known as the Fruit Kingdom of Japan.
The abundant sunshine, temperature differences between night and day, and pure waters from Mount Fuji, and of course the passionate and skillful farmers with their long history of fruit making all make the perfect produce.
