Overview

Kinjiso (Okinawan Spinach)

Said to have come along with the Kitamae cargo ship from Kumamoto. It was widely cultivated from the early Showa period as restaurants began to use it as food. It is said that its deep purple color comes from being grown in the Hokuriku climate, with its large temperature gaps and acidic soil.
