The word Etrog (a.k.a. Citrus Medica), refers to the incredibly flowery-fragrant, yellow, medium size citrus fruit that sort of looks like a bumpy lemon. However, you might know them for their religious purpose. Etrogs are used during the week-long Jewish holiday of Sukkot. In Modern Hebrew the word etrog is also the name for citron of any variety or form, whether Kosher or not. Typically, unless you have your own tree, Etrogs are not always easy to find when you need or want them...but now you can have them directly shipped right to your door from your favorite name in specialty citrus...Pearson Ranch.
