WE LOVE 'YUZU'
It's been called the world’s sexiest fruit and it’s a darling of chefs, yet you may never have heard of it.
So brace yourself for the taste of yuzu, a rare and divine citrus fruit from Japan grown in New Zealand by Neville Chun and his Family from Lower Hutt, New Zealand.
It tastes like a cross between a lemon, mandarin and grapefruit and is finally being accepted into Western cuisine, where it is being used to flavour everything from beer and chewing gum to vinegar and cocktails.
It is widely stocked in Asian food.
‘Yuzu' looks like a tangerine and tastes similar to a floral lime.
