Kiku-daidai is a Japanese citrus that's considered a symbol of longevity in Japan because they will remain on a tree for several years if no one picks them. They turn orange in winter and back to green in summer. The word Daidai means "several generations."

The daidai has influenced Japanese culture in various ways. An old word for the color orange in Japanese is daidai-iro, which stems the word for the daidai fruit.

The fruit of the daidai is extremely bitter and is seldom eaten. It's used as a flavor in cooking and its peels are used in traditional Japanese medicine.

The best known use for Kikudaidai is at the top of Kagami Mochi, a Japanese New Years decoration.

A medium-large yellow fruit. Rind is rough similar to rough lemon. Rind of medium thickness, flesh yellow, hollow core.

The Kikudaidai was known in Japan as early as 1864 and is still grown in gardens as a curiosity. Its flower forms a very short inflorescence and leaves are rather broad with large petiole wings.

Kikudaidai is known as Ju dai dai in Chinese.
