Jabara (ja:ジャバラ) or Citrus jabara (Tanaka) refers to a plant and fruit that is among the Japanese citrus.

'Jabara' is a fruit similar to the yuzu, deriving from a cross of the yuzu with a pomelo-hybridized mandarin (Citrus nobilis, but distinct from King),[1] that arose naturally in Wakayama Prefecture, Japan

An extract made from the pericarp of the jabara has been used in cosmetics.[2]
