Items of Acerola produced from “Yanbaru” where is northern part of Okinawa
Acerola was introduced for the first time in 1958 to Okinawa by bringing one nursery stock from Hawaii, but real production did not start until 1982. Because Acerola was originated in West Indian Islands in Caribbean Sea, heat and strong sun of Okinawa island’s northern area called Motobu town is quite suitable to grow Acerola on their relatively dry soil. Motobu town is the northern limit where it is possible to grow Acerola outside (without green house). Most northern grown Acerola has very sweet and mild sour taste.
Acerola and strictly selected materials of Okinawa
Acerola is said to be the king of vitamin C contained fruit, because it contains 34 times more vitamin C than lemon. Because Vitamin C is indispensable component to make a beautiful skin, that is why vitamin-C-rich Acerola is called “beauty skin fruit”.
