    My translation is Jishi Yuzu, but my Japanese friend says they are called Sisi Yuzu in Japan.

    After further investigation the correct english for this variety is shishi yuzu.

    Lazz, the entire web site you listed is in Japanese, but nice picture. According to Webber "the Yuzu is doubtless another ichandarin resulting from a cross pollination with some variety of mandarin orange and the Ichang papeda." Now very trendy in restaurants, however, not the ones I go to. - Millet

    Hi Millet. Yes it is all in Japanese as I think this variety of Yuzu is only available in Japan. Another one I will have to add to the collection.

    Hi, Laaz. I recently had a similar revelation while reading The Citrus Industry - Vol. 1; the number of Citrus species listed in it was mind-boggling.

    Have you tried looking for the Yuzu under either Citrus pseudogulgul or Shishiyu?

    Hi Junglekeeper I did search both, but as you will see there are no US sources for them.

    Do a search on Citrus junos and Japanese Citron
    and you should find some US sources for Yuzu.

    I have the standard Yuzu, these are not the standard Yuzu. These have huge fruit.

    I suggest you do the search. You may
    even find other forms of Yuzu (some
    are known as Kuzu to some people),
    if you look hard enough since you
    already claim to have the sour orange
    x citron hybrid. Sorry that I intruded..

    mr.shep you haven't intruded whatsoever. I have the standard Citrus Junos. They are about the size of a large mandarin. The shishi yuzu is about twice that size. If you have a source in the US for these please let me know.

    I was also going to suggest looking under "junos", a supplier with the large-fruited form might have it listed under that name.

    Refer to the comments in post 18 by torakris from

    comparison.

    Hi Jim. That is exactly what I'm looking for. My friend in Japan is sending me seeds, but if you know of a US source for grafted plants let me know.

    Thanks, Laaz
