This is a list of citrus I found in Japan. Most are from a book published in 2006 by

Hiroshi Hatano formerly with Miyazaki Japan Ag dept and Univ.) Many of these are old or different classifications from what we are used too. Many of the citrus themselves are also very different from what we are used too. They are all currently being grown commercially in Japan. In the book, some are not marked with the Latin names and I am just offering the names as presented.
