Yujing is likely the site of Tevorang (大武壟), a former political unit of the Taiwanese aborigines. The name has also been spelled Tefurang, Tefurangh, Tevoran, Tevourang, and Devoran. Tevorang was one of nine villages that joined in warfare against the people of Favorlang (modern-day Huwei, Yunlin).
In 1920, the name was changed from Tapani (噍吧哖) to Tamai (玉井) and administratively was called Tamai Village, Shinka District (新化郡), Tainan Prefecture. During Japanese rule Tamai produced abundant sugar.
In the 1960s, with government promotion, the name "Yujing" became almost synonymous with "mangos".
