○ History of Hallabong
was first created in 1972 by the Japanese Department of Agriculture and has
been cultivated since 1984. Hallabong
was named so because it resembles the peak
of Mt. Halla and is also called
Bujihwa in Korea. Naju initiated the test production of Hallabong
in 1987 and began to produce it for sale in 1994. Bacause Naju has more sunshine and fertile
soil than Jeju Island,
along with its advanced irrigation and rain control technology, Naju produces
more Hallabong than any other region in Korea. With eco-friendly cultivation and a strict
quality assurance system, Naju’s Hallabong is recognized as
a prestigious product.
