Yuzu is a citrus fruit native to East Asia, hybrid of mandarin and wild lemon. Zest and juice are used in Japanese and Korean cuisines and increasingly by Western chefs. The Yuzu fruit has a powerful aroma, its essential oil is used as a fragrance. The Yuzu tree is cold-hardy, and thus can be grown in regions with winters at least as low as -9°C (15°F) where most sensitive citrus would not thrive.
YUZU Productions is member of the Ecoprod Charter.
