Eden Nori Sea Vegetable is cultivated on nets supported by bamboo poles. This intricate substratum is placed in shallow pristine bays in late September or early October. Over the autumn, winter, and early spring months, with the coming in and out of the tide, the nori spores attach to the netting and slowly develop into nori fronds or leaves. In spring the fully developed fronds are hand harvested at low tide and taken ashore. The nori is washed, chopped and placed in mixers. It is then pressed between woven reed mats and dried into flat, paper-thin sheets. Our nori is a lustrous purple black color with a fine aroma missing in lesser grades.
