How to Choose Japanese Peaches

It’s the best season for Japanese peaches. Let’s go and choose the sweetest and juiciest peaches!

Japan Yamanashi Naito Peach
With only a limited amount of cultivation, one peach tree keeps only a small number of peaches for harvest. They are harvested only when ripe, so each fruit’s sweetness level is 12 brix on average. The peaches gain their bright red colour from the sunshine.

Japan Nagano Iwashita Peach
Located in Nakano city in Nagano prefecture where the average annual rainfall is low and has a wide temperature difference between day and night. This temperature difference gave the peaches a sweeter and richer taste. To improve fruit sweetness, they use “Diamond Amino” as fertiliser. It includes amino acids that encourage the promotion of microorganisms in soil and increase absorption of fertiliser.

Japan Yamanashi Black Stamp Ohtohryou Peach
Otoryou is one of the highest grading index for peaches grown in Misaka prefecture with a sweetness level of 13.5 or more. The Black Otoryou is the rarest variety, with an extra 0.5 brix in sweetness. In season only from July to early August.

Japan Yamanashi Ichinomiya Premium Peach (Black Box)
Of all Yamanshi peaches, Premium is the highest grade of Ichinomiya variety, and Black Box are premium peaches for gifting. The fruits are bigger than normal peaches with a rosy appearance. Extremely fragrant with a sweetness level of 14 brix or more.

Tips on how to choose peaches

  1. Full and round appearance with even colour
  2. No bruises or dents
  3. Peaches with more tiny furs on the surface are usually sweeter
