    1. Actually most mornings I have a squeeze of Yuzu – got a tree in our front yard

  1. Yuzus are Japanese limes. Look like lemons with bumpy skins but taste sweeter. I use them like lemons/limes. We planted the tree a loooong time ago. Didn’t grow or fruit until I threatened it with death. Then it took off with a vengeance – must have scared the living daylights out of it, lol. We now get heaps of fruit every season. It’s only a couple of years ago that I googled it out of curiosity as I had forgotten what it was, It’s quite rare here in Adelaide, South Australia, apparently. The trees have wicked long spikes that can penetrate thick soled shoes so beware 🙂
