  • Meyer lemons are fantastic, dontcry. They're a little "sweeter" than common lemons but also less acidic and they have a bit of a floral taste, so depending on what you're using them in, they can work better than regular ones. They also smell great. :-)

  • But isn't the tartness the reason for using a lemon? I do like the 1/2 a cup of juice yield, however. *must find this much ad-meyer-ed lemon for a tasting*

  • Russ Meyer lemon :-/

  • Ad-meyer-ation of its culinary virtues aside, this cultivar is likely a hybrid between a lemon and an "oranger" co-hybrid, perhaps an orange or a mandarin. To this marriage it owes its sweetness, perhaps.

  • ad-meyer lemon to be admired not mired in the same citric sameness?!?

  • Large fruits with a thin rind, with lots of easily liberated juice. Both the rind (for zesting) and juice (1/2 cup per fruit sometimes!) are sweeter than the lemons one typically finds at the grocers.

    The trees are not tall at maturity, take pruning well, and do quite nicely in large patio planters - provided one grows them where they survive what passes for winter in warmer climes.
