What is the process of growing? 

Ranunculus has a rose-like appearance and has a variety of shelf life. The variety of sizes, colors, and shapes is ideal and optimal. 

The altitude of cultivation is 500-1000m, and we make the best quality without overdoing it by using the difference in altitude. 

Ranunculus varies from region to region, but dried bulbs are absorbed and refrigerated from late July to August. 

In order to improve the quality, we try to remove the virus of the strain, lack the buds at an early stage, improve the cultivation environment to eliminate pests, and cultivate at an appropriate temperature. 

Planting is in early September and harvesting is from late November. 

In order to improve the quality, the early-maturing varieties are considerably shortened in refrigeration. Therefore, early-maturing varieties will be delayed in shipping. 

On the other hand, late-maturing varieties are adjusted so that they can be refrigerated longer and shipped faster. 

After that, in order to improve the quality, we try to pick all the sides. 

 

What makes this farm unique? 

Takachiho: A lot of varieties and original varieties 

Flower Spirit: Huge head size and long terms of harvest season
