Kito Yuzu’s characteristics of aromal and sourness can’t be seen in other strands of the Yuzu citrus fruit. The reason we can produce Yuzu with a strong aroma is due to the height above sea level. Yuzu are planted 300-500 meters above sea level in the basin between mountains. Also we have a lot of rainfall. （The Kito Area holds the record for the highest annual rainfall in Shikoku and the highest short-term rainfall nationally.）
One of the most distinguishing features of Yuzu is its citrus fragrance. Moreover, the refreshing citrus flavor and fragrance of Yuzu is one of the internationally recognized aromas of Japan, (along with Sakura and Matcha).
