Citrus limon (L.) Burm.f.
Lemons and their hybrids
November – January
Variety recovered at the Research Institute of Acireale (Italy), which possibly owes its name to the morphology of its fruits, reminiscent of the Adam’s apple.
TREE AND FRUIT DESCRIPTION:
Tree of medium vigor and medium production, sometimes with fruits in clusters. The fruit is elliptical in shape, with apical mamenlon and basal neck little accentuated. The rind is smooth, bright yellow, moderately thick, with very apparent oil glands, but not very aromatic. The albedo is thin, with a strong flavor due to the intrusion of essential oils. The flesh is pale yellow, bright, very juicy and very acidic. Juice of excellent quality. Seedless, only occasional seeds. Hollow central axis.
Uses include flavoring with the juice or combining it with other citrus juices to add character.
