朝採りなおかつ初物のぶどうを! First grapes of the Season!

海外からの留学生ととぶどう園行きました。今晩の我が亀清旅館のお客さんは初物の朝採りぶどうを食べられます。巨峰とシナノスマイルと黄華の三色。


そして、売店用に話題の皮ごと食べられる種無しナガノパープルも。特別な価格で提供してます。
今年の夏は雨や曇りの日が多かったせいか、ぶどうの出来上がりは去年より1週間ぐらい遅れました。この頃は天気になって、良い色と味になってきました。りんごの方は雨のおかげで大き目になり、豊作の予感です。
ぶどうは恐らく10月上旬まで、
りんごはシナノスィート、シナノゴルド、秋映(長野りんご三兄弟)が10月、ふじりんごが11月の予定です。
信州の果実の秋を満喫しましょう!採りたてが一番美味しいですよ!

Grape Season in here!
I took our exchange student from Hungary to Nakajima Orchard to buy the new-crop grapes so serve as dessert to our guests tonight here at Kamesei Ryokan. We got 3 colors of grapes: the purple ‘Kyoho’, red ‘Shinano Smile’ and green ‘Ouka’.
I also got some bunches of the popular ‘Nagano Purple’ variety to sell at our front desk. They are seedless, and you can eat the skin (for ‘Kyoho’ and many other Japanese varieties, you usually have to pop the skin off before eating). Fresh picked this morning and first of the season, and priced very reasonably.
The orchardist said all the rain and the lack of sun this summer meant this year’s grape crop is maturing about a week later than usual. Apple trees on the other hand loved the extra rain and it looks like this year will be a bumper crop.
The grape harvest should continue through early October.
Apple season will start in earnest with the early autumn varieties in October, including the 3 Nagano Apple Siblings: the red and aptly-named ‘Shinano Sweet’, the crisp and green ‘Shinano Gold’, and deep-red colored ‘Akibae’. Then the mainstay ‘Fuji’ apples are usually harvested in November.
We hope you come and enjoy Nagano’s delicious autumn fruits!
