Citrus limon (L.) Burm.f.
Lemons and their hybrids
October – April
Variety characterized by the morphology of its leaves and the bearing and appearance of the tree. The leaves are thin and elongated and reminiscent of the willow tree, hence its name.
TREE AND FRUIT DESCRIPTION:
The tree is not very vigorous but very productive. Its branches have a descending tendency, unlike other lemon trees. Markedly lanceolate and elongated leaves, willow-like, dark green in color. Medium-small fruits, somewhat dull yellow and ovoid in shape, with a characteristic and pronounced basal neck. Lumpy, almost rough rind, with a sweet aroma. Edible albedo, thick, of pleasant flavor. Pale yellow flesh, with a tendency to dry out if left on the tree after ripening. Not very juicy. Acid juice, without nuances. Almost total absence of seeds. Small and hollow central axis.
Its culinary use is centered on the albedo and the rind, which has a different fragrance to that of the table lemon.
