Citrus limon (L.) Burm.f.
Lemons and their hybrids
October – May
Variety cultivated in Tuscany (Italy) as early as the 15th century. It is characterized by showing two types of fruit, and because both have a rind grooved by vertical striations, between which “channels” are formed, hence its name canaliculata.
TREE AND FRUIT DESCRIPTION:
Vigorous and productive tree. Dark green lanceolate leaves. Medium-sized fruits with two morphologies, oval and globular, both with a small apical mamelon. The rind is generally very rough, furrowed by numerous vertical grooves that form channels between them. The fruits of globular morphology have less rough rind. Bright yellow color when ripe, although it can preserve greenish tints. Edible albedo in fruits with less striated rind, in which it is also thicker. Juicy pulp, very acidic and refreshing. It has few seeds.
It can be used for seasoning, both with the rind and the juice. Its albedo, in the less striated fruits, can be used fresh or in preparations.
