Ribbed from Palermo
Citrus limon (L.) Burm.f.
Lemons and their hybrids
October – May
This curious variety is native to Palermo (Italy) and is distinguished from the old variety of Ribbed (canaliculata) lemon from Tuscany because its fruits have a pyriform morphology.
TREE AND FRUIT DESCRIPTION:
It is a vigorous tree, with an erect and productive bearing. Large, rounded leaves. Fruits of small-medium size and very diverse forms, although mainly pyriform. Presents an apical mamelon and a protruding base in the shape of a crown, providing the pear-shaped aspect. Bright yellow rind, with a fresh, somewhat soapy aroma. Medium juicy, acid and fragrant pulp. Almost total absence of seeds.
Its uses are linked to the characteristic aroma of its rind, as well as to the freshness of its juice.
