Luxurious strawberry, Amaou! 8 options proposed for 2020

Strawberry luxury brand of Fukuoka Prefecture “Amaou”


“Amaou”, known as a premium strawberry for its size, freshness and deliciousness, was registered as a strawberry variety in 2005.
The fact that it is only made in Fukuoka prefecture also gives a sense of premium. The name “Amaou” was given by a public recruitment in the province. It is a combination of the acronyms “red”, “round”, “big” and “delicious”, and it also means “to become the king of sweet strawberries”.

how to eat

Strawberry smoothies are easy to dissolve in water, so before taking out, wash and wipe thoroughly before taking out.
It is best to eat a rich flavored “Amaou” without adding anything. The bright red flesh becomes a very beautiful crimson color when jammed.
It is moderately acidic, making it great for pastries and smoothies. Alternatively, if you crush it and let it freeze, you can use it for strawberry milk or yogurt.

Storage method

Not just limited to “Amaou”, strawberries are a fruit with a lot of water, so the water and vitamins are lost over time. It stays for a few days in the refrigerator vegetable drawer, but it’s best to eat it that day.
If you cannot eat, rinse with water, drain, remove fiber shavings, put in a sealed box like Ziplock, put in the freezer. Sprinkle with sugar makes it difficult for strawberries to stick together. If it is frozen, it can eat well in about a month.
