Tokita Seed's Otone Research Farm Open Day

Post by Zasso Nouka » Sun Oct 14, 2018 6:53 am

Tokita seeds are having an open day at their research facility in Saitama on November 14th & 15th if anyone is interested

Otone Research Farm Open Day

They have some fairly interesting varieties and over the last few years have really come on a long way, personally I'm hoping to see their range of mini tomato as we are thinking of giving them a try next year. Should be an interesting day out.

Some pictures from the open day. In addition to their normal varieties Tokita have put a lot of effort into producing European vegetables like these kales

And black cabbage (black kale)

And some very nice fennel

They've also developed some nice looking purple leafy vegetables like these purple komatsuna, mibuna and chingensai

Image

And some of their mini tomatoes looked quite interesting

Also thinking of giving these kabocha a try next year, they are nice small size so easy to use without having to eat pumpkin for the rest of the week after you start one and apparently they store very well.
