The best known Japanese fruit. A unique, tart citrus reminiscent of a heady lemon with a hint of bergamot. This fruit resembles a small grapefruit with variable skin texture.
The yuzu tree is prickly and the fruit difficult to pick, but like a rose, yuzu is worth the thorns. Yuzu fruit is sourced locally from farmers in Tokushima prefecture, a region renowned for yuzu production.
