So, we bought a YUZU tree...now what?

liu | Jul 10, 2006 12:57 AM

This weekend we bought a YUZU tree at a Japanese nursery in the Los Angeles area: San Gabriel Nursery in San Gabriel. We were quite surprised that they had several trees available. I had posted several weeks ago that we had a YUZU juice at a local sushi bar that was amazingly delicious. I have never seen the fruit in any markets, so, next best was to buy the tree!

But now what do we do with the harvest? You can respond slowly...you have about 5 years! Actually, there are some small fruits on the tree already.

Does anyone know when to harvest? We believe that the green fruits -- about baseball size -- are better than waiting until they turn yellow. But once we have the fruit in the kitchen, what do we do with it? Has anyone had any experience here?

I anxiously await your replies!
