Naturally grown in beautiful waters off the coast of Vietnam

There are many unknown spectaculars in Vietnam.
One of them is the clean, clear, beautiful ocean.
The high salinity and stable water temperatures throughout the year make it an ideal place for growing high quality Sea Grapes.
Strong sun light and sea beds high in nutrients help the Sea Grapes to grow quickly and strong.

There are mainly two ways of growing Sea Grapes.
One is cultivating them in on-shore disinfected sterilized sea water tanks, providing the Sea Grapes with synthetic diets. Okinawa mainly uses this technique.
The other is planting the sea grape seeds directly on to the ocean bed in isolated ocean ponds. The natural currents provide nutrients and minerals for the sea grapes to absorb. Everything is “Naturally grown” without the use of any chemicals.
We use the “naturally grown” method.

All Sea Grapes are inspected and graded thoroughly with care and attention.
