Recommended Shopping Items
This is a type of tangerine with a protruding stem. Each weighing about 200~300 grams, the fruit is relatively large, and its sarcocarp is very sweet and soft. Hallabong is rarely the slightest bit sour, so it is liked by people of all ages. It is usually picked in November and December and stored for future sale. Winter and spring are the best seasons to buy it, and the prices vary depending on quality. A 3-kg box (7~8 fruits) is priced at 30,000~50,000 won.
Gamgyul (tangerine)
Tangerines grown in warm Jeju weather have thin rinds and high sugar content. If you feel hallabong fruits are too pricey, the tangerine is recommended. Tangerines vary in taste and price depending on whether they were grown in outdoor fields (noji) or in greenhouses. Noji tangerines are harvested from November to February. They have both sweet and sour tastes. House tangerines are picked between March and October and have very high sugar content. Noji tangerines are enjoyed in winter, while house tangerines are preferred in summer. Tangerine chocolates and candies are also available. A 3-kg box of house tangerines costs about 20,000~40,000 won, while a 3-kg box of noji tangerines is priced at about 20,000 won.
Baeknyuncho (optia fiacus midia)
Baeknyuncho, a type of cactus, is shaped like a flat fan and is also called a "palm cactus." It is indigenous to Hallim-eup in northern Jeju. Violet fruits come out from November to March. The fruits and stems are usually used to make fresh juice or made into powder to mix with tea or drinks. The powder can also be sprinkled on yogurt or salad. Baeknyuncho is especially recommended for women as it is rich in dietary fiber and inorganic substances such as calcium and iron. Baeknyuncho powder is priced at about 30,000~40,000 won per kilogram.
Omija (schisandra)
Omija is known to have a mixture of five tastes:sweet, sour, bitter, salty, and hot, and is usually consumed with tea. The most distinctive feature is the sweet and sour taste lingering at the tip of your tongue. The berries are reddish.They are not only tasty but also good for your health. They strengthen your heart, lower your blood pressure, and improve your respiratory system. They also boost your immune system. Drinking omija tea regularly is effective toward maintaining one's health. Products are available as omija tea - an omija extract blended with natural honey. It is priced at 30,000~50,000 won per kg.
Okdom (sea bream)
Okdom (sea bream) is a common fish around Jeju Island. The most popular way to prepare okdom is by grilling it. In Seoul, when a ritual is held, a croaker is served. In Jeju, sea bream is considered the finest fish and is presented at rituals instead. When grilled, sea bream is soft, savory, and nearly completely fat-free. It is usually sold frozen or dried. Its price ranges from 50,000~60,000 won per kg (2~3 fish).
