Our umeboshi, (pickled Japanese plum) starts with the highest quality ume (Prunus mume) fruit we grow using natural farming methods, without chemicals or pesticides. During harvest time, we handpick and process all on premise, thus preserving the full flavor and quality of the fruit. We use solar dried sea salt that is rich in minerals. We also grow purple shiso (Perilla fruteuscens) to give our umeboshi added umami flavor, its crimson color, and other medicinal health properties. According to Macrobiotics and research studies on ume, aged umeboshi has a very alkalizing effect on the human body, with many beneficial health properties.
We solar dry our umeboshi under the California sunshine, and let it season a minimum of 3 years. Our final product- a unique salty, tangy, fruit-forward flavor reminiscent of an old fashioned Japanese umeboshi taste held true by following traditional methods. Hand packed in 7.5oz glass jars.
