Meyer Lemon of California's Central Coast
The Meyer Lemon, first brought to the US from China in 1908, is thought to be a cross between a true lemon and a mandarin orange. The Meyer tree is small, reaching 6 to 8 feet at maturity. It flowers intermittently throughout the year, but the main season of fruit production is the spring. The lemon is a medium sized, round fruit that has a beautiful golden yellow color. The edible skin is shiny, and smooth with small pores. The rind of the Meyer is thin, and the fruit very juicy, and less acidic than that of true lemons.
The fairytale begins. Bump down a single-lane country road to frog hollow farm on a hot summer morning, and the first thing you notice is the rich, summery perfume of sun-ripened peaches filling the air. Everywhere you look, fairy-tale bears and frogs cavort across boxes stacked to the sky. (more...)
