YUZU

    3 responses

snottiegobble starts with ...
Anyone had any luck growing Japanese yuzu, the ugly fruited prickly citrus with a fantastic scent? I was sent some seeds by a FB friend, & have one seedling that has survived to reach around 15cms! Very slow growing at this stage in a pot, & I would like to plant it out this spring so advice by someone with experience with yuzu would be very appreciated !

Do you know if "yuzu" is a particular variety of citron or just the Japanese word for citron? It's not the sort of thing that is easy to look up.

Thanks for highlighting this anomaly. I looked into it. Citron is Citrus medica and Yuzu is Citrus junos. They are very different to each other . I think only the mandarin chinese would mistake the two as we wouldnt call a pomelo a yuzu. There are many fruit name anomalies. . Some call Eugenia uniflora the brazilian cherry when that name belongs to Eugenia braziliensis according to the growers in South America and the USA. and New Zealand. Eugenia uniflora is Surinam cherry or sometimes Pitanga. .

Pouteria caimito is the Abiu aka caimito and the star apple is Chrysophyllum cainito and also called Caimito.
If you look through the books you will find many other examples.

Hi Manfred, the Yuzu is a particular variety. Its not a Citron, its more related to Papedas, ie Kaffir Lime.
There is a group of related Yuzu type fruit also, see this article about Japanese Citrus.
