Today I would like to compare the taste of citrus fruits.
Among the fruits, I like citrus fruits because they are sweet and sour and juicy. When I went to the supermarket recently, I noticed citrus fruits that had a name and I hadn't seen much before, so I thought I'd like to compare them.
It is a general term for the genus Citrus of the Rutaceae, Aurantioideae, and Citrus. It has a refreshing, sweet and sour taste, and the exodermis contains essential oils such as limonene.
I knew about Citrus unshu, Hassaku, Orange, Nable, Grapefruit, Decopon, Pomelo, Daidai, Yuzu, Kinkan, Lemon, Sanpoukan, Iyokan, Amanatsu, Sudachi, Lime, Sweetie, Melogold, Shikuwasa, etc. , There are more than I expected.
This time I ate Shonan Gold, Shiranui, Haruka, Setoka with interesting names.
It is a product of "Imamura Unshu" and "Golden Orange", and has been shipped since 2006 and is also registered in the "Kanagawa Brand". The market is mainly from mid-March to mid-April. It seems to be very popular because the number of shipments is small and the period is short.
I bought it at the supermarket "Life" Musbu Tamachi store. It was about one size smaller than the S size of Satsuma mandarin, but I think there are some that are a little larger. A bag of 6 pieces costs 429 yen, which is high for this size and quantity. The color is lemon, the outer skin is firm eyes, and the endothelium is edible. Anyway, it had a strong citrus-like scent, and the taste had a good balance of sourness and a little sweetness. it tastes very good.
I ate a small lemon-colored citrus fruit from Hiroshima prefecture. It is a natural hybrid seedling of Hyuganatsu. The color of the appearance is reminiscent of lemon, but the taste is not sour and has a strong sweetness. The outer skin is hard and difficult to peel off, and the endothelium is also hard and cannot be eaten without peeling. Also, there are so many seeds. I'm sure it's good for people who don't like the acidity of citrus fruits.
I ate it from Aichi prefecture. It is a product of "Kiyomi" and "Encore" and "Murcott". It's very big, but the outer skin is very thin, there aren't any seeds, and the endothelium is thin, so it's hard to peel off if it sticks to the fruit. It also has a special scent, the taste is extremely sweet, and the acidity is just right. Because it's big, I feel like I'm tightly packed.
