Huge and sweet, “Bijin-hime”
You would definitely be surprised to hear about a strawberry costing 50,000 yen a piece. But the strawberry named “”Bijin-hime (beautiful princess)”” made at Okuda Farm costs that much. The reason for the extremely high price is the size, sweetness, shine, fragrance, and color of each piece.
The taste is also quite surprising. In Japan there is a saying, “”Peppers are small and hot. Japanese radishes are large and not hot””. However, this definitely doesn’t apply to “”Bijin-hime””. Despite the size, the sweetness is above 13 degrees, and it is quite smooth. Each piece is bright red and shiny, with a glow of its own.
Satisfying the palate with jam
Because of its size, color, and shine, “”Bijin-hime”” is quite often used for decorating wedding cakes. Cakes adorned with “”Bijin-hime”” are sure to make a lasting impression.
