It was developed with the aim of achieving a good balance of slightly sour taste in the juicy, strong sweetness that makes you feel as if you are eating whole strawberries. The soft serve ice cream is made by lining the ripe strawberries without adding extra heat so as not to spoil the flavor, so that you can enjoy the natural taste and color of the strawberries.
Amaou from Fukuoka Prefecture"Amaou" is a strawberry that was registered as a variety in 2005. It was born after about five years of research and development with the aim of becoming the best strawberry in Japan with higher quality and sweetness as an alternative to "Toyonoka", which had been popular as the main variety until then. Cultivation is permitted only in Fukuoka prefecture, and it is loved by locals because of its rare value and deliciousness, and it has become a brand that represents Fukuoka prefecture.
The familiar name "Amaou" is derived from the acronyms "red," "round," "large," and "delicious." The wish to become the king of sweet strawberries is also included.
