Fresh yuzu, sudachi, and kabosu sighting

At Tokyo Fish Market in Albany. I've never seen or tasted the latter two Japanese citrus fruits. For some reason my brain was in non-impulse-buying mode so I did not buy any of them, but I might go back tomorrow.

  1. Domestic yuzu and arguably the other two citrus fruits are grown in two Southern California farms, one of them is Nagatoshi in Oxnard.

    I spotted yuzu @ 99 cents per at Nijiya Mountain View and also Suruki in San Mateo. Not cheap but the season is short. There's also yuzu juice you can buy, for seasoning/cooking or anything really (way too bitter and sharp to drink) and recently I've enjoyed it with papaya vs lime or lemon.

      I've seen sudachi at Nijiya in San Jose, which probably means the other Nijiya markets have it, too. It was pretty expensive, though (I can't quite remember, but I think it was a few dollars for a kumquat sized fruit).

    2. Yuzu is definitely available in season at Monterey Market.

      1. Spotted recenty at Whole Foods in SF....Yuzu grown and exported from Brazil. A measly $18.99 a pound :-o

          And I thought 5.99 a pound was a lot!
