The Citrus manga is written and illustrated by Saburo Uta and serialized in Ichinjinsha's Comic Yuri Hime magazine. The chapters are later compiled in tankōbon volumes which are published by Ichijinsha under their Yuri Hime Comics imprint. The volumes usually come with extra chapters known as Citrus+ and leaflets with even more extra chapters. Starting with volume 4, each volume also has an alternative version with different covers, with every two volumes' covers forming a single image (odd-numbered volumes have covers featuring Yuzu and have white backgrounds, while even-numbered ones feature Mei and have black backgrounds). Volumes 1-3's alternative versions were released along with volume 4.
