    Popular farm offers homemade suguki pickle with their carefully grown vegetables

    Morita Ryo Noen has been running a farm for over hundred years in Kamigamo in Kyoto, where fertile soil and water is abundant, making it the traditional vegetable growing area of Kyoto.  At this time, the third owner, Morita Yoshihiko, and his son are growing vegetables in an environmentally friendly way with minimum usage of pesticides and herbicides.  Carefully grown vegetables are also used at first class Japanese restaurants and other famous restaurants  Many chefs and people in Kyoto particularly choose their vegetables for their quality.  Their homemade suguki pickle (pickled Kyoto radish) (100 g; from 200 yen) is made only with salt and their farm grown suguki radish.  It is so popular, that they quickly sell out when the pickle is ready, so their regular customers put a pre-order beforehand.  This is why it is also known as the Phantom Pickled Suguki Radish.
