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