Live trees are occasionally available in southern
California nurseries and probably in the SF Bay area.
Be warned that some people claim that not all trees
sold as Yuzu are actually Yuzu.

Yuzu trees seems to reproduce pretty closely from seed
but Yuzu is very slow to produce fruit when grown as a
seedling. By very slow I mean from 10-15 years. The
tree is fairly cold hardy. Mine survived 18-19 degrees
this last winter.

You can find the fruit pretty often in Bay area Asian
grocery stores. Mizuno in San Jose has it frequently.
