Who Bought the Product
Lately, the umeboshi that are around are either too sweet or tasted too artificial. I feel like it’s getting harder to find umeboshi that actually taste good. That being said, I think this umeboshi has a tasty natural taste. I feel like my tired body feels better after eating it. I will definitely buy again when I finish the one that I bought.
I’ve always eat umeboshi that is produced by Ryujin Plum. This time, I bought this product as a present for my mother who lives in my hometown. My mother was very delighted that I sent her this. Thank you very much.
The taste and the texture was very good. The umeboshi was very soft. It is easy to use it to cook or to make onigiri.
I ate the umeboshi with much delight. I feel the traditional umeboshi taste as I’m eating it. I think it is also good for the body.
It was very delicious. I think it is very good that the umeboshi is produced without chemical pesticides, fertilizer, or any other chemical substances.
I don't really like umeboshi that has a sweet taste. This one has a simple yet natural taste of salt and shiso. It fits my taste perfectly. I will purchase again.
What is Ryujin Plum?
In the highest peak in Kishu called Mt. Gomadan, where the stream of Hidaka river is flowing through the valley, there is a place where nature and history is nurtured called Ryujin Village (Ryujin Natural Food Center). There are about 1600 plum trees in the field of about 3 hectares in "Blue Dragon's Village" overlooking the clear stream Hidaka River. Starting from the soil when the seeding process begins, there is no chemical sterilization. So no chemical pesticides or fertilizer is used. The planting only uses the traditional compost such as momigawa and tree skin. Still, the plum tree produce lush greens and bear many fruits every year. The essential plum fruit that is grown with the power of nature is harvested one by one with the utmost care. Because it is grown with no chemical fertilizer, the plum will have a strong fragrant smell. The plum field of Ryujin Village, as far as the eyes can see, is filled with sweet plum fragrance.
The fresh Plum that is harvested from 1600 trees will be made into umeboshi (pickled plum), juice, plum extract, and other products. All of them are made with traditional manufacturing methods. Although still not many people know about Ryujin plum, Ryujin produce more than 50 ton of plums each year. An enthusiastic fan of Ryujin plum might say “If it is not Ryujin plum, it won’t taste as good”. It is a pickled plum known only to the people who know it.
