Halacha - mehudar esrog
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: What's considered a mehudar esrog?
Answer:

The first priority is that the esrog should be clean from noticeable blemishes, especially the top part. After that it should be a good size and yellowish color as well as a shape like a "tower". The actual determination by the Rav whether the esrog is "mehudar" or just "kosher" is a subjective assessment of all the above factors. For more information see the article at Revach.net about choosing an esrog.
