Where to Buy Yuzu
Despite growing in popularity over the last few decades, yuzu juice has been conventionally tough to find. Yuzu trees require specific conditions to thrive, including a cool climate and well-drained soil, making it challenging to cultivate outside of its native regions. There are strict regulations on the import of fresh citrus from Asia, Plus, yuzu's short shelf life and delicate nature make it difficult to transport long distances. Because of this scarcity, yuzu and yuzu products tend to be expensive. In places like California where there is a small amount of yuzu grown every year, you can find it at some farmers markets and specialty grocers during the fall/winter season.

While it may still be challenging to find fresh yuzu in the USA, various yuzu-based products such as juice, zest, and sauces are becoming more accessible. At YUZUCO, we offer a cold-pressed 100% Yuzu Juice as well as a more affordable, yet equally versatile Yuzu Super Juice—which is created by extracting both juice and oils from the yuzu peel.
