Increasingly popular with chefs for both savoury and sweet dishes, Yuzu juice adds a distinctive tartness to sauces, cocktails, salad dressings and desserts. The fresh fruit is almost impossible to find in the UK, so why not try to grow your own!

Yuzu is an upright, thorny tree bearing tangerine-sized fruit with bumpy skin about 5 to 7cm in diameter. The young fruits are green, maturing to yellow or orange. The leaves and flowers are also heavily scented.

Citrus trees are ideal feature plants, bringing a touch of Mediterranean style to conservatories and patios. They make excellent, long-lasting, and fragrant gifts. When you give an orange or a lemon tree as a present, you’re giving a decorative, scented, and productive plant! The delicate waxy, and highly scented flowers are beautifully offset by the lush, shiny green foliage.

They will take time to mature and fruit, but are wonderful, classy plants in their own right with the additional bonus of intense scent throughout the year and especially winter. Hardy to 5°C, they are best grown outdoors from May to October, and brought inside for the winter.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

1 x 3 Litre Potted Plant (KC5366)

Plant citrus trees in patio containers in a mix of ericaceous compost and neutral, soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3. Repot the plant at its original soil level and firm well into the new container. Water well and position in a frost free position in full sun.
Stand citrus trees outside from May to October. Water freely in summer and mist leaves daily to increase humidity and discourage pests. Feed with citrus plant fertiliser every 2 weeks. Move plants indoors from October to a bright, frost free position (4-12°C) away from cold draughts and radiators. Reduce watering in winter but do not let the plant dry out completely. Too much or too little water may cause the fruits to drop.
