Congratulations to our own Jeff Rasche for placing 3rd in the Grow Out Contest!
In this event, people bought Dainichi Showa (with free shipping included). Then their Koi were grown at Kodama Koi Farm in Oahu for the summer, harvested in August 2017, and entered into the contest.
Back in April 2017, these Koi ranged in size from about 9–13in (22–32cm); and now at the beginning of September 2017, they range from around 15–18in (37–46cm). Bold sumi (black) patterns have developed beautifully on many of these Showa.
