ORIGIN DATA:

Although the name indicates it is a citron, this variety could be the result of a cross between a lemon and a citron. Its name refers to a coastal town south of Naples with a great tradition in the cultivation of lemon trees.

 

TREE AND FRUIT DESCRIPTION:

Vigorous, open growing tree. Large, broad leaves. Large fruits, predominantly cylindrical in shape, which may have a small apical mamelon and a flat base with a sunken insertion point. The rind is thin, smooth but somewhat bulky, sometimes with longitudinal ribs; very aromatic, emits a strong and pleasant fragrance just by touching it. Edible albedo, thick, sweet. Scarce pulp, very acidic, bitter and moderately juicy. It presents seeds.

 

USES:

The rind can be used to flavor dishes and drinks. The fresh albedo can be a side for many dishes, or used as part of both green and fruit salads.
