I want to share with you two more strawberries that we've tried.
The other week, I walked past a yaoya (vegetable/fruit stand) in our shopping arcade and couldn't pass these up.
The sign said "asa-tori" which means "picked this morning". A container of this for 400 yen (about US$4).
I'm not sure of the variety but they were fresh, local and sweet.
I also wanted to show you Saga Honoka, from Saga prefecture in Kyushu. These berries are quite large and sweet.
Their mascot, or "image character" as the Japanese like to call them, is Licca-chan, who is (in my opinion) the Japanese Barbie.
Are you loving any fruits lately?
