Item Description



Hassaku from Setouchi





Hassaku is the hybrid Citrus maxima, and it is very popular

with its dense pulp and fresh juice.

The granulated sugar in syrup, which is often used for

high-class Japanese sweets,

makes the most of the taste of fruits

and brings out the refined sweetness.


〜About Hassaku〜

Freshness and a bit of bitterness are its features.

This type of citrus maxima was discovered

at the precinct of temple in Hiroshima.

When the skin of fruits is thick, you usually snick it to peel the skin.

For this product, skin is removed, so you don’t have to worry about that,

Just enjoy tasting Hassaku!


【Harvest time】


A middle of December to late February is the busiest harvest season.


【Fact of Hassaku】


In the Edo period, Hassaku was discovered at the temple in Hiroshima.

Because a chief priest of the temple said,

“We will be able to eat it in Hassaku”, the name of “Hassaku” was given.

※Hassaku means “Aug.1” in Japan

Nowadays, Hassaku is harvested from winter

to spring, and sometimes store it to remove the sourness.
