October 25 (Wed.) New apple in Tendo "Koma Fuji"
(Highestthe highest 15.4C /Lowestthe lowest 9.7C /Rainweather - rain) [
Index and Temp.]

Tendo agricultural cooperative decided to appoint a new kind of apple "Koma Fuji" as an encouragement kind of an apple. They have a naming ceremony and a meeting to promote one.

The name "Koma Fuji" is named by Mr.Toshimasa OONUMA who is a junior high school students in the Tendo Daisan junior high school. The name "koma" means a piece of shogi(Japanese chess) and the name "fuji" means one of famous kind of apple and the Mt.Fuji which is the highest mountain in Japan. A breed of "Koma Fuji" is born as a variant and it has some good characteristics.

  • We can harvest the "Koma Fuji" around on 20th October, about 20 days earlier than the kind "Fuji".
  • We can expect a high price because the season of "Koma Fuji" is a time of the change of other kinds.
  • Sweetness, coloration and ball growth is good.

Now almost apple tree of "Fuji" become aged trees because it spends 40 years when they start to plant. And the crop time of the "Fuji" is the middle of November, so it is very cold and it is hard for farmers to gather. Many farmers want a new kind of apples. Tendo agricultural cooperative has a plan of full-scale shipmen from 2003.
