Fresh Yuzu in Brookland


Thanks to a reader for sending:

“Fresh yuzu is hard to find almost everywhere in the U.S. so we decided to grow our own in our little corner of Brookland.”

  • I’m dying with envy. Where did you get it?

    • We purchased our dwarf yuzu tree at Edible Landscaping which is near Charlottesville, VA. We also picked up lemon and lime dwarf trees. Citrus is hard to grow in this climate so we keep all three trees in our sun room during the winter.

  • Congrats on the yuzu! I have a reasonably productive lemon tree. I don’t have any good windows though, so I have to use a light when I bring it in. It’s a ridiculously finicky plant, but I put up with it because I really enjoy smelling the blossoms as well as eating the fruit.

    • Glad to hear your lemon tree is working out. We’re having a hard time with our lemon and lime trees. The both suffer from acute cases of early fruit drop and I think have citrus canker. I’m close to throwing in the towel on them but will likely give them a stay of termination through the winter. Have you had any problems with early fruit drop or some kind of mold/lesions that take over the stems of the trees?

  • I’ve been wondering what the tree in front of my house is here! We have a mature yuzu in front of the house I rent. Thanks for sharing!

    • Wow, that’s impressive! I’m sure there are plenty of people and restaurants in the area that would love to have some fresh yuzu from your tree. Where do you live? 😉
