Tasting Japanese Raisin Tree Fruits – A Review

Today I’ll be telling you all about the Japanese raisin tree and its unusual edible fruits, as well as tasting this weird Japanese fruit (it’s actually from China originally before being cultivated a lot in Japan). The fruit are sometimes know as natures pretzel and taste a lot like sweet dried fruit. I’ll show you what the seeds look like and I’ll look at growing these from seed in future, and share a video about that depending how it goes and if I have success with it. Japanese raisin tree (Hovenia dulcis) is a very cold hardy tree surviving to -23 degrees C (-10F) if not colder. Such a cool, novel and rare fruit! Hope you enjoy 🙂
