Nakano Fruit Farm
Nakano Fruit Farm, which has been producing grapes in the Tanushimaru district for over 50 years, is the most popular fruit park in all of Fukuoka prefecture. The first farm head of Nakano Fruit Farm was the first to begin cultivating the Kyoho type of grapes in this area as well.
Including their trial cultivars, there are over 40 different types of grapes cultivated at this vineyard.
When out grape picking, visitors can choose from more than 15 different varieties of black, red, green and multi-colored grapes – many of which you might be seeing for the very first time! This is the perfect place for grape aficionados to visit. Plus, compared to other vineyards, here you can pick Kyoho grapes earlier than anywhere else; the Kyoho grapes are ready to be picked starting in late June.
While it goes without saying that these grapes are delicious, they are also conscientiously raised: no hormones to limit seed growth or colorant additives are used in the cultivation of these grapes, which makes them completely safe for children to enjoy.
Plus, in recent years, a strawberry farm has been added to Nakano Fruit Farm thanks to the increase in the number of people wanting to enjoy strawberry picking for themselves in Fukuoka. In particular, guests enjoy picking their own amaou strawberries, which are Fukuoka’s prefectural brand, as well as toyonoka and benihoppe strawberries. These are part of a 30 minute, all-you-can-eat course. In fact, in order to accommodate the number of people wanting to pick strawberries, more greenhouses have actually been added here.
These strawberries are also grown using organic soil and primarily organic fertilizers, which means that visitors can taste the natural sweetness of the strawberries safely. Although the strawberries are soil-cultivated, they are grown in such a manner that the strawberries themselves do not touch the ground directly, which makes them safe to eat straight off the vine.
Since Nakano Fruit Farm is a long walk from the nearest train station, they also offer a free shuttle service to and from the station, for those that have made a reservation by phone or email in advance. Please give them a call when you arrive at Tanushimaru Station.
Please come visit Nakano Fruit Farm and enjoy picking your own strawberries, grapes, and persimmons in a safe, cozy, family farm atmosphere.
