Lisbon Lemons are juicy with a true lemon flavor, and a lovely rind that is excellent for zesting, both qualities which make them great to cook with. They’re terrific to use in making preserved lemon, or peeling the rind for your favorite cocktail.
Meyer lemon skin is fragrant and thin, colored a deep yellow with a slight orange tint when ripe. Meyer lemons have a sweeter, less acidic flavor than the Eureka lemon usually found in supermarkets. Delicious in any recipe that call for lemon, especially desserts.
