The Secret of the Deliciousness of Japanese Pomelos

The gentle and delightful flavor of pomelos comes from the sweetness of fructose, a component shared with honey.
You can experience a natural and refined sweetness.
Moreover, the taste varies with the size.
Larger pomelos tend to have a light and refreshing taste, while smaller ones have a more intense flavor, accentuating sweetness and acidity.

It might be interesting to compare and contrast the flavors based on their sizes.
However, it's not just about the delicious taste.
Pomelos are rich in vitamins such as vitamin C and vitamin P, as well as minerals. Additionally, they contain components like GABA, auraptene, potassium, among others.

The History of Japanese Pomelo

In Japan, during the Edo period, fruits (seeds) were brought in from the southern regions, leading to the development of unique varieties through natural propagation. Mainly cultivated in Southeast Asia, southern China, Taiwan, and Japan, there are approximately 15 varieties of the citrus fruit known as 'Buntan' currently grown in Japan.
One of these varieties is the 'Tosa Buntan.'
According to records, the original tree of 'Tosa Buntan' was planted at the entrance of the Horticulture Department of the Kochi Prefectural Agricultural Experiment Station (now the Fruit Tree Experimental Station of the Agricultural Technology Center) in the fourth year of the Showa era.
Saplings propagated from this original tree were planted in the fields of a farmer in Tosa City in the 18th year of the Showa era. Tosa City is not only the birthplace of 'Tosa Buntan' but also the leading producer of this citrus fruit in Japan.
