Popular the world over for over 100 years, Meyer Lemon was discovered in 1908 near Peking, China. Believed to be a hybrid cross of C. limon (lemon) and C. reticulata (mandarin orange), it features juicier and sweeter fruit, and less acid than common lemons. Meyer Lemon’s wonderful edible fruit adds delicious flavor to drinks and to fresh and cooked dishes. Its beautiful color adds a wonderful garnish to other dishes.
