In Hijimachi Oita Kyushu, 80 cabbages grew 4 times bigger than usual. It’s 36cm wide, 18cm high, and 1.1m long around, weighs 4kg at average.

The agricultural department of Oita prefecture comments they didn’t change the way of farming, the reason why it grew this big is not known. The harvest period is about a half month behind usual but it is rare to grow to be this size.

The farmer, Mr. Tsutsumi also comments, he has been planting cabbages for 10 years but he hasn’t seen such cabbages.






  1. The agricultural department of Oita-The reason why it grew this big is not known./Perhaps they would appreciate a columbian necktie as a gift, for playing “fun games” with people’s lives involving internal and external high level radiological contamination.
    The farmer, Mr. Tsutsumi also comments, he has been planting cabbages for 10 years but he hasn’t seen such cabbages./Truthful civillian.
    /killing the people below you on the totem pole seems to be normal. Something should really be done about that here/there everywhere, it’s going to get very costly. This behavior must be snuffed out.
    The answer “uhhhh” is not one, and 2 they know very well WHAT IT IS, as do I.
    The real story is their LYING AGAIN.

  2. FUKUSHIMA DIARY FR – Les choux sont 4 fois plus gros à Oita
    Par Mochizuki le 17 juin 2012

    A Hijimachi Oita Kyushu, 80 choux sont 4 fois plus gros que la normale. Ils font 36cm de large, 18cm de haut et 1,10m de long environ, pèsent 4kg en moyenne.

    Le département de l’Agriculture de la préfecture de Oita précise qu’ils n’ont pas changé les méthodes de culture, la raison de ce gigantisme soudain est inconnue. La période de récolte est en avance d’environ deux semaines par rapport à d’habitude mais il est rare d’avoir des récoltes de cette taille.

    Le fermier, M. Tsutsumi précise aussi qu’il plante des choux depuis 10 ans et qu’il n’a jamais obtenu de tels choux.

  3. Yes, this sort of thing, one season after the TEPCO disaster, should have the public health people out and testing these giant cabbages. Let’s see if they will do their job.

  4. Why aren’t someone testing all of these gigantic vegetables for radiation?!?! These and the other deformed plants and vegetables need to be tested immediately! Why aren’t more researchers interested in this?

  5. I received a 9cm strawberry in a package from “U.S.A.” (i assume CA). The price was cheap. I threw it out. I will throw them all out now.

    1. yeah i noticed enormous california strawberries in the local grocery here in Tennessee and my brother in florida said the same – i didn’t buy any – we’re eating our own homegrown irradiated yard food ♥

  6. The cause of this alarming ‘over-fertilization’ effect is apparent to most of us: harmful levels of fallout from radiation. (Oita is in the NE of Kyushu island, SW of Tokyo, and considered by many to be at a ‘safer’ distance from the source of radiation in Fukushima, although clearly the levels are elevated and a threat to public health and the safety of the food supply.) If the local farmer plans to sell these cabbages as prize specimens, we should be all the more alarmed. This sort of ‘giant produce’ must be appearing throughout the country, even though not reported. Note that there are radionuclides found in phosphate fertilizers: see the journal “Environmental Geochemistry and Health,” Volume 30, Number 1 (2008), 79-86: article titled Measurement of natural radioactivity in chemical fertilizer and agricultural soil: evidence of high alpha activity (Dipak Ghosh, Argha Deb, Sukumar Bera, Rosalima Sengupta and Kanchan Kumar Patra).

  7. Are they waiting for some of these giant specimens of vegetalia to bolt so that seed can be had?

  8. The “seed” of the japanese or their vegetables etc, are no longer viable, the enormity of the implications will become clear, to some know it all’s it is all quite clear already.

  9. my god that cabbage is so radioactive it has also mutated the farmers hand. look how big his hand is… his head to. he should drop it right away.

About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
