However, outside of Kochi Prefecture, which produces around 50% of all the yuzu grown in Japan, use was quite restricted until the 1970s. Only the zest was utilized, to impart its fragrance to specific dishes, and only in the past few decades that the entire fruit has started to be utilized. The juice and mash have arisen as popular ingredient in various dishes and desserts.
