Nagasaki Premium Citrus Fetching ¥3,000 Per Piece

A fruit called “Setoka,” grown in Minamishimabara City, Nagasaki Prefecture is known for its rich sweetness and juicy pulp and is becoming increasingly popular in Japan. Farmers in the Shimabara Peninsula carefully cultivate the fruit, checking for blemishes and aiming to sell them at a high price for gift-giving purposes. High-end Setoka produced in Minamishimabara are sold for around 10,000 yen for a package of five and can sell for as much as 3,000 yen each. The fruit is difficult to grow due to its thin skin and sharp thorns on the stem, and it must be protected from discoloration. Despite this, efforts are being made to improve the quality of the fruit and promote it as a high-end product. Source: Nikkei
