KABOSU citrus peel is one of the most popular glace confections in Japan. The peels of KABOSU citrus fruit from Oita Prefecture, which have fully ripened on the trees in the sun, are carefully prepared following a secret recipe. The slight sweetness and citrus freshness combined with the aroma bring out the natural flavor of this fruit.

KABOSU is a specialty fruit tree of Oita Prefecture and has been planted for medicinal purposes since ancient times. According to legend, it was first planted in Oita during the Edo period (1603-1867) from seedlings brought back from Kyoto. Its gently sour and bitter citrus taste is perfect for modern Japanese sweets.

When you hear the word "citrus peel", you may imagine it to be bitter and hard to chew. However, this KABOSU peel is carefully cooked so it has a graceful flavor with little bitterness or acidity. Its sweetness is moderate, and its natural aroma spreads in the mouth, therefore the original taste of the fruit can be enjoyed. In addition, since no food additives are used, it can be eaten with peace of mind..

In 2013, this KABOSU peel won the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Award at the National Confectionary Exposition, and its deliciousness has long been highly acclaimed. Please enjoy its refreshing natural aroma and graceful taste at your tea time.
