Saeakari is a 1997 developed cultivar. It's a cross between Z1 and Saemidori. The name "Saeakari" derives from the appearance of the teas liquor resembling Saemidori. But Saeakari also implies the high quality even under strong sunlight in summer ("akarui hizashi" in Japanese). The taste of Saeakari is better then Yabukita and comparable with Saemidori. Due to Saeakari's pest tolerance and high yield it's expected to replace Yabukita in long term.
