From November to December, it is the best season for the Unshu orange which has a great reputation of being a premium fruit. It is believed that the sun rays from the sea which reflect to the sloping hills are what makes this orange exquisite. Besides its natural environment, the quality and safety of these oranges are taken into account. The Unshu orange has won the double star award at the Vegetable Sommelier Summit held by Japan Vegetable Sommelier Association.
