Appeal of Tsuburina

Stable Production

  • Stable production throughout the year is possible because Tsuburina is cultivated indoors while maintaining the most suitable environment (for the ice plant).
  • Rigorous control of cultivation environment and quality is ensured.
For normal ice plant cultivation

Its growth slows as temperature increases, and the leaves wither and the ice plant acquires an acidic taste. The flowers bloom in July, but the ice plant cannot be shipped at that time. Shipment of the ice plant is from November to June.

Stable Quality

  • Characterized by crunchy stalks and good, salty taste.
  • The top of a head contains more nutrients than found in large leaves. Therefore, only the top is delivered in packs.
  • Indicates nutrition facts.
    The content of inositols (pinitol), beta-carotene, etc. is analyzed in-house at regular intervals.
For normal ice plant cultivation

Its taste depends on the cultivation technology adopted.
Unsuitable cultivation technology may adversely affect the taste of the ice plant: for example, “not salty”, “too acidic taste”, etc.

Safety and Security

  • No pesticides are used.
    Thus, no residual pesticides are detected at all.
  • Neither heavy metals nor radioactivity is detected in the test.
    The number of general bacteria at harvesting time is approximately 1/10,000 that of soil-cultured vegetables. Thus, the life is long.
For normal ice plant cultivation

In soil cultivation of the ice plant, the ice plant sucks up heavy metals (cadmium, etc.). Thus, soil analysis is required. In addition, pest control is required.
