FAQs about etrog

In addition to consuming the etrog, you can use it for healing purposes. It has a tradition of helping women dealing with morning sickness from pregnancies.

You can place whole, unsliced etrog in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Doing so will help it last two to four weeks. You can also put it inside the refrigerator as it will last for three to eight weeks this way. To make it last even longer, consider freezing the etrog. It will keep this way for up to one year. You can also choose to just freeze the zest later for baking.

During Sukkot, a Jewish harvest festival known as the Feast of the Tabernacles, etrog citrons are one of the four species used in prayer. This seven-day fall celebration takes place on the 15th day of the month of Tishrei following Yom Kippur.

Sukkot celebrates the Israelites' pilgrimage from Egypt to Jerusalem. The etrog was mentioned in the Old Testament as the "fruit of the Godly tree," and is now used during morning blessings and prayers. For the morning blessing, a person holds an etrog in the left hand and a palm, myrtle, and willow brand in the right. These items represent the four species, and together you wave them in the morning of each of those seven days.
