So, we bought a YUZU 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 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!
