More Information

Slighter, more slender and with a more delicate skin than European varieties, Kyuri are a sweeter alternative with crisp, cool, succulent flesh.

During the Festival of Obon – a summer festival honouring ancestors – families fix wooden sticks into fresh Kyuri to make effigies of spirit horses which are intended to ferry ancestors from the realm of the dead to the party as quickly as possible.
