Fruit Protection Bag


What a beautiful Mango! I thought Mango season was already ended on Kauai this year but this was a first crop at Rebecca and Mo's garden.  I felt honored and grateful to receive this Mango as a gift.  Also I was very happy to know their experiment to use "Kajitsu-burkuro" for Mango was successful.


Kajitsu-bukuro(果実袋) is a Japanese word, which literally means a "fruit bag."  It is an individual paper & plastic bag to protect fruit or vegetable from bugs, pests, and sunshine.   Since most farmers in Japan use this bag, fruits sold in Japan are very beautiful!  In addition, they are very delicious. 


I knew and saw fruit bags in Japan but I didn't realize the importance of the bags until uncle Mo told me he was looking for this.  So when I went to Japan in March, I bought and brought some bags to Kauai.

This is the picture Rebecca sent me some time ago.  This bag has a plastic window so that you can see if it's ready to pick. 

Again, beautiful and tasty Mango! I guess I should get some more bags when I have another chance to go to Japan!
