JR Chiba Midori Asahi Cucumber Soooo Japanese!! Lol

Mermaid's picture

JR Chiba Midori Asahi cucumber departmental meeting produces the “Heart stick” and the “Star Festival stick.”

When a cucumber is still small…
…it’s put into a heart-shaped container and allowed to grow.

“Heart stick.” You can find it at a supermarket in Tokyo Midtown, Roppongi.
Lots of stars and hearts appear when you cut them!
Not only something for the kids to enjoy!

The price, 258 yen, is a little higher than regular cucumbers - but they are fresh and crisp, and the shapes are wonderful.
