Peaches

Given that Fukushima is the nation's second largest producer of peaches, they can be said to be the "prefectural fruit" of Fukushima. These have a gentle pink color and a delicate sweet aroma, and have a good nutritional balance of vitamins and minerals. These contain high pectin, which removes toxins and harmful products, thus cleansing the body. You can see trees laden with these sweet fruit mainly in the Fukushima City and Date areas. These are not grown in bags, and thus by being directly exposed to the sun, have a rich taste and attractive appearance. A light sensor is used to measure their sugar content and hardness, with only carefully selected peaches being sold.
