It is selected and named by French citrus guru Alias

Citrus junos yuzu n°3 R-18°c maturité:OCT-NOV qualité: XXXXX
So this is a good variety right? Thank's!

If anyone wonders what the Yuzu aroma is like, it's like a mix of mandarin orange, satsuma mandarin, sour marmalade orange (C. aurantium), and lemon all combined together. There's a lesser note (maybe 25%) of grapefruit in there, and a very slight but discernable note of guava. There's also something very pungently deep and "spicy" about the fragrance of Yuzu, which is probably one of the first things you'll notice when you smell it. It's a very unique citrus smell.

I once had a Yuzu tree,  I remember it as a very sour fruit, literally packed with seeds and very little juice..   I noticed with interest the Okinawan Lime in Louisport post.  I lived on Okinawa for a couple years and never seen a single orange tree of any type.

Adavo has Sudachi? Are you sure? I have been there three weeks ago -no Sudachi. Real Sudachi. Hanayuzu is not Sudachi, that's false.

No, my sudachi is not from ADAVO. I got it from other place. And of course hanayuzu is not sudachi. I think mine are real because they came from seeds from Japan.
