Ume plum, which is the raw material for umeboshi, is a plum that has been carefully cultivated through organic cultivation that has been established over many years in the natural environment of Tanabe City, Wakayama Prefecture, the home of Kishu Nanko Ume.
Tanabe City, Wakayama Prefecture, is blessed with a warm climate with little change in temperature throughout the year due to the influence of the Kuroshio Current flowing into the Kii Channel. The heavy rainfall and long daylight hours also help in making an environment suitable for the characteristics of plum blossoms.
In addition, "Uridani ishi", which is often found in this area, is made of calcium carbonate and is a medium-quality soil that contains a large amount of calcium required for plum trees. The producer, Takeuchi Farm, is particular about the best soil and organic cultivation for this ume production, and continues to grow high-quality ume until now.
Plum itself is a fruit that can be eaten as a whole, so with the motto of safety and security, our plum farmers are working on pesticide-free and chemical-free fertilizers. As a method of preventing plum insects and diseases, they use wood vinegar, which can be taken from nature as a natural pest repellent and do not use pesticides. Instead of chemical fertilizer, our farmers use a natural foliar spray made from garlic, fish, and oysters.
Of course, you can also use it as a rice ball topping, put it over rice porridge, or enjoy with cooked rice.
By using the salty taste of pickled plums, you can use it as a seasoning for cooking.
Adding a small amount of dried plums will improve the aroma of fish. The sour taste of dried plums makes it possible to enjoy fish with a refreshing aftertaste.
