Citrus limon (L.) Burm.f.
Lemons and their hybrids
October – May
Variety of unknown origin but ancient, as it was already described in the agronomic treaties of the 16th century. Its name refers to the great diversity of shapes of its fruits.
TREE AND FRUIT DESCRIPTION:
Medium vigorous tree but very productive and open bearing. Some leaves can be curly, but others straight. Fruits with very diverse morphologies: ribbed, variegated, pyriform, globular, flattened, with or without apical mamelon… Rough or smooth rind, from intense to pale yellow in color, usually with greenish tints. Albedo of variable thickness. Acid pulp, more in the less bizarre fruits, while the bizarre ones have a softer and more aromatic juice. It may or may not have seeds.
The juice of the more bizarre fruits can be used directly in the elaboration of lemonade.
