Looking for Yuko and Kabosu citrus in Tokyo 2014/11/1 04:15
Hello. Do you know of any markets in Tokyo where I would be able to purchase the Yuko and Kabosu citrus fruits? I will be there in November and would really like to both taste them and harvest some seeds. Thanks in advance! (I already have Yuzu and Sudachi and would like to add to me experience/collection)

Or it might be sold at greengrocer's around Ota market.

Antenna shops from Okinawa, Kyushu or Shikoku might have kabosu: http://www.bento.com/r-antenna.html

I have no idea what "yuko" means.

hallo.I'm Japanese.
I have never heard of "yuko".
But maybe "yuzu" and "yuko" are the same thing.
"yuzu" is written in kanji as "Mq", and "q" is usually pronounced as "ko", "shi" etc..

sorry, it seems that yuko and yuzu is not the same thing.
yuko is mainly grown in tokushima prefecture.

Thank you very much for the information! I might have to make a special trip to find the Yuko. I hope some Kabosu are still left by the time I get there. I will also try and find the Shikuwasa - Xόir
