"Amaou" is a rare type of strawberry that is only grown in Fukuoka Prefecture. The name comes from the first letters of "Akai (red)," "Marui (round)," "Ookii (large)," and "Umai (delicious)." It also implies that the manufacturers hope that this brand will become "the king of sweet strawberries (Amai = sweet, Ou = king)!" You can find a huge range of deserts made with fresh Amaou as soon as strawberry season hits Fukuoka! There's even a local desert buffet that utilizes Amaou! It is a very exciting time of year! The six episode of short anime "Hakata Mentai! Pirikarakochan" is set in the kingdom where Amaou-kun was born. This kingdom is not only home to rich, savory dishes like tonkotsu ramen and motsu nabe, but also bittersweet Amaou strawberries. The video provides a snapshot of all the different sides of Fukuoka and reminds us that each has its own charm♪


あまおう● あまおう (Amaou)

"Amaou" strawberries are known for their large size and sweet taste. But there is more to this fruit than just its delicious flavor. They were also developed to help local farmers. The large size of the strawberries actually reduces the farmers' workload. Their shape makes them easier to harvest and package.

Popular, high quality fruit that help make farm-work easier to manage... It seems that "Amaou" really are the "King of Strawberries." Don't you think?

博多明太!ぴりからこちゃん (Hakata Mentai! Pirikarakochan)
