SKU: N/A Categories: ,


A rare citrus related to Yuzu, Jabara has a similarly unique and pronounced flavor profile and both its rind and tart juice are accented by its peppery fragrance and taste. Juicier than yuzu, it is a robust fruity citrus that goes well with meats and other rich foods and dishes. Jabara is also valued as a natural medicine for pollen allergies because of its high concentration of the flavonoid narirutin.

Cultivated for centuries in parts of Japan, and perhaps nearly as well known as the yuzu in that country, it has been considered an “indispensable companion” to eating matsutake mushroom. The ponzu (ポン酢, “pon vinegar”), the squeezed citrus juice used as an alternative to vinegar uses sudachi among other bitter oranges (kabosu or yuzu juices, and daidai) as an ingredient

Season: December – February
Prime Location: Wakayama Prefecture. From Oi Shio Japan
