We visited a farmer in Nagano prefecture between the representative Ezawa and the chocolatier Honma, and had them specially divide a small amount.
This glass sweets are different from the Verrine tailoring (layered sweets) of 2 kinds of cherries, 2 kinds of peaches and 2 kinds of grapes that have been on sale since August.The flesh is trapped in a transparent jellyIt's just a very simple configuration. Approximately 4 queen rouges are contained in a refreshing jelly with a hint of lemon.
Queen Rouge is a grape with a crimson color that was developed by crossing Shine Muscat and a unicorn.
The refreshing muscat scent that you can feel the moment you put it in your mouth, the richness and sweetness of the overflowing red grapes, and the long finishIs moving.
Half-thawed crispy textureIt is recommended that you eat it at.
Both jelly and grapes are slightly frozen to give the best sweetness and texture.
Put it in the refrigerator for about 4 hoursIs about to be eaten.
"Because I will probably be dealing with" Queen Rouge "for the first time in the sweets industry, I wanted you to experience its potential first, and I pursued how to deliver the excitement of freshly harvested.
The true value of this grape is demonstrated by tasting the whole skin, so we repeated various trials and errors so that we could deliver it frozen with the freshness first.
"Queen Rouge" is a new grape that has not been put on the market yet, which was produced by Nagano Prefecture after repeated research to develop grapes that can be eaten with seedless skin, which is representative of the prefecture, next to "Shine Muscat" and "Nagano Purple". It's red grapes.
I visited a grape farmer in Nakano City, Nagano Prefecture to meet this precious grape, which is aiming for the first shipment in 2022, as soon as possible.
The rich greenery that you can see as soon as you get off the Toyota Iiyama IC on the Joshinetsu Expressway. On the side of the road, you can see apples that grow quickly ahead of the future harvest and rice fields in the middle of rice harvest.
When I drove while looking at such a rich environment, I arrived at my destination, Mr. Otsuka Farm.

Otsuka Farm is a small number of elite farms run by a family and several others. Besides grapes, apples and pears are also grown.
The greetings were also guided to the vineyard immediately, and I met the Queen Rouge growing on the tree. The upper part is dyed in bright red, and the buttocks are green that makes you feel the remnants of Shine Muscat.
According to the story, Otsuka Farm's Queen Rouge is the first fruit of this year, the tree itself is young and growing, and the actual coloring is shallow. It seems that it will become more crimson fruit over several years from here to shipping.
Here, I will try the long-awaited Queen Rouge! It was said that the sugar content had not survived yet, but the taste was ...
Fruit juice that pops the moment you put it in your mouth. The scent of Muscat, whose skin is thinner than Shine Muscat and cracks and scents. The richness and sweetness of the red grapes rushes in from here, and it is touchingly delicious. When I measured the sugar content, it was 24 degrees. This is horrible to be developing ...
After that, I tried other varieties and gave a lecture about grapes, leaving the farm.
I would be happy if we could deliver this excitement to everyone as soon as possible! "
