“Yacchiro Banana” is a safe domestic organic banana that can grow even in cold Japan with thorough temperature control and careful manual work. Nurtured by the sea breeze of Yatsushiro, it is completely pesticide-free and carefully grown, so even the skin can be eaten. In addition, we take measures by manually removing all the “pests” that are a problem unique to pesticide-free cultivation.
The variety of banana is “Gross Michel”, which is different from ordinary bananas. It also has a very thin skin, so you can eat it without worrying about the skin.
Furthermore, the point that “Yacchiro Banana” was particular about is that the package, which is usually wrapped in transparent vinyl, is made from a plastic-free material that returns to the soil from the perspective of SDGs. The bananas are individually wrapped in translucent glassine paper so that you can see how the bananas are ripening, so you don’t miss the best time to eat them.
In addition, in commemoration of the new sale, we will offer a special price of 2,750 yen instead of the regular 5-piece set of 3,300 yen. This will be sold at a special price until the end of the first shipment.
With its simple and elegant design, it can also be used as a gift. Of course, please enjoy this opportunity as a reward fruit for yourself and your family.

■ Background of sales of “Yacchiro Banana”
Yatsushiro City was originally a prosperous area for the production of rush used for tatami mats.
In recent years, as the demand has been sluggish, the Kumamoto Produce Shipment Association has focused on producing fruits and vegetables, mainly tomatoes, and has been providing them to stores and restaurants nationwide.
However, due to the spread of the new coronavirus, the consumption demand for fruits and vegetables at restaurants has decreased. While sales and unit sales prices are declining, we aim to
domestically produce bananas, which are mostly imported in Japan, and have begun efforts to make them a new local specialty.
