Citrus limon (L.) Burm.f.
Lemons and their hybrids
October – Juny
Lemon variety presumably originated on the Greek coast, but about which there is no additional data.
TREE AND FRUIT DESCRIPTION:
Vigorous tree with rounded morphology and fruiting almost all year round. Large, dark green leaves. Fruit of medium-large size, ovoid in shape with a pointed apical protuberance and an apparent basal neck. Smooth, bright yellow rind, darker as ripening progresses, thick, hard and aromatic. Albedo thin, consistent, with a bitter touch but edible. The flesh is pale yellow, juicy, with medium acidity and some seeds. The juice is aromatic and of acceptable acidity to most palates.
It can be a good substitute for the traditional table lemon, providing slightly different fragrances. The rind is aromatic and interesting for bakery.
