Halacha - mehudar esrog
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

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.
