There is an old saying in Japan, “Three years for peaches and chestnuts, eight years for persimmons, and eighteen years for stupid yuzus!” This seemingly insulting phrase describes how long it takes before the trees bear fruit. For Japan it teaches how precious yuzus are and how one must wait before good things can happen.
The wait is indeed worth it. The aromatic and nutritious yuzu has a complex citrusy flavour, with a taste that is a cross between lemon, mandarin and grapefruit.
The yuzu juice is the main form of this fruit and is used extensively in Japanese cooking, sauces and condiments.
Now as popularity grows it is expanding into juice drinks, tonics, desserts, seafood dishes, and much more.
