Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
What does the Etrog and its tree have in common?
וּלְקַחְתֶּ֨ם לָכֶ֜ם בַּיּ֣וֹם הָרִאשׁ֗וֹן פְּרִ֨י עֵ֤ץ הָדָר֙ כַּפֹּ֣ת תְּמָרִ֔ים וַעֲנַ֥ף עֵץ־עָבֹ֖ת וְעַרְבֵי־נָ֑חַל וּשְׂמַחְתֶּ֗ם לִפְנֵ֛י ה' אֱ-לֹהֵיכֶ֖ם שִׁבְעַ֥ת יָמִֽים׃
On the first day you shall take the product of hadar trees, branches of palm trees, boughs of leafy trees, and willows of the brook, and you shall rejoice before the LORD your God seven days.
The Talmud teaches that the bark and fruit of the Etrog tree, have the same taste.
This is because the bark and fruit have the same chemical composition.
Others say, that it is the soft, green branches of a young Etrog tree that tastes similar to the Etrog fruit.
(Sanhedrin 22b, Sukkah, Nedarim 51a)
