Hardly any fruit evokes as much esteem or mystique as yuzu, a Japanese citrus variety that looks like a bumpy, uglier cousin to the lemon, but its flavor, fragrance, and intensity are incomparable to other citrus. Decadently floral, tart, and assertively aromatic, the scent of Yuzu is so potent that it is cherished in Japan not only for its culinary value, but also as a perfume and bathing oil for special occasions. Yuzu of any form is rare outside of Japan, but under ripe “green yuzu” is even rarer. In Japanese cuisine, green yuzu is cherished for its piquant, peppery flavor, imparting a fragrance reminiscent of kaffir lime leaves or black dried limes. The intensity and sourness from green yuzu are even more concentrated than yellow yuzu, without as much sweetness or floral character, making it an even more effective condiment in savory dishes.
