Title: Why Mikawa?
Post by: Intriguedbybonsai on June 01, 2012, 05:15 PM
First of all, I am seeing many (varieties?) of JBP. Mikawa seems to be a popular choice. What are the other types, and why is the Mikawa most popular? Sorry for the newbie, possibly obvious questions. :P

Mikawa is known to back bud relatively easily and have straight needles.
