Many apple orchards are spotted in Morioka. Apple flowers bloom in May and the harvest season is from September throughout November.
Young apples are covered with short fur and are furry. They are very different from the ripe ones that we are accustomed in seeing with shiny skin.
By picking out small apples and thinning the apple tree, plenty of nutrients get packed into the ones that are kept, making them larger, juicier and sweeter.
Apples grown in Morioka are very tasty - depending on the variety, there even are apples with a honey core in the flesh!
The season for apples is here. Please come to Morioka and enjoy our delicious apples!
