Citrus ichangensis x Citrus reticulata. Yuzu trees, upright up to about 10' on dwarfing stock, are the only citrus trees that can survive temperatures down to about 20 degrees. A necessary ingredient in many Asian dishes, the Yuzu fruit won't win any beauty contests, but its flavor and fragrance have no peer. Yuzu juice is used to make ponzu, the deeply fragrant rind is grated onto many dishes, and the fruit is plopped into a hot bath during the winter solstice. Fruit ripens during the fall and watch out for vicious thorns while harvesting. Grown on dwarfing rootstock in 5 gal containers. No flowers or fruit as of May 2014 on this small new crop of trees, about 2' above pot, 1/2" caliper trunk. Shipped in 3' x 1' x 1' braced box.
