The Authentic Taste of Hokkaido:

Tsuyabeni Melon Red Meat Melon Direct from Maruyama Farm

Grown in the pristine natural environment of Japan’s Hokkaido, these melons are known for their unique texture, juicy flesh and refreshing aroma.

Among them, Maruyama Farm is located in the Furano Basin, ideal for growing melons, with temperatures reaching 30°C or higher during the day in summer and -30°C or lower in winter; the large temperature difference between day and night results in a higher sugar content in the melons. Maruyama Farm carefully cultivates the melons in the natural environment, resulting in a delicious, gem-like Tsuyabeni Melon - Red Meat Melon. The melon has the highest sugar level in the country. Its skin comes in a beautiful net pattern and the flesh is thick, firm, juicy and very sweet. Give them a try!

Apart from scrumptious Tsuyabeni Melon - Red Meat Melons, city’super has also prepared a selection of melon-flavoured snacks such as jellies, cat tongue cookies, sandwich cookies and candies. Melon lovers: don’t miss out!

Premium Hokkaido Speciality:

Taki Farm Shiromitsutorokibi Corn

Summers in Hokkaido are hot during the day but the temperature plummets at night. Due to this large temperature difference between day and night, crops can accumulate a large amount of sugar, which is perfect for the growth of delicious fruit and veggies. The Shiromitsutorokibi Corn, delivered directly from Japan’s Taki Farm, is one such example. Each pearl-like kernel is crystal clear and refreshingly sweet. Simply wash and enjoy it as sashimi.

Japanese Taki Farm Shiromitsutorokibi Corn
Shiromitsutorokibi is a variety of corn first developed in the 19th century that has since become an iconic crop. However, the production of Shiromitsutorokibi Corn has decreased in recent years. In response, a group of young farmers in Hokkaido have decided to revive the crop in the hope that more people can enjoy it. Taki Farm aims to grow a super-sweet corn. They avoid the use of pesticides or chemical fertilisers, striving to use the best practices in sustainable agriculture.

city’super also brings you Hokkaido White Corn, which is delicious whether eaten raw, roasted or steamed.
