Meyer Lemons...A Taste of Sunshine

I discovered Meyer lemons for the first time over the weekend. I'm in love. They are thought to be a cross between a true lemon and a Mandarin orange and they're not widely found in typical grocery stores. You may not be able to tell from the photos, but they are these small, smooth, floral-scented, yellow-orange gems.  Yes, the peel really smells like flowers. And the flesh smells like oranges. And they taste like super sour tangerines. And they're not as yellow as a typical lemon. Ok, I'm really not doing them enough justice in this description, but believe me when I tell you, they're divine. I wasn't very creative today and didn't make anything special with them. But I did manage to cut one open and squeeze some of its sparkling juice into a nice glass of cold water.  It made my water so much more special and I smiled. I felt like I was drinking sunshine.


  1. A cross between lemon and a tangerine sounds so great. I love citrus! I had never heard about Mayer lemons before. Thanks for posting about them

  2. My grandfather has a farm and has few types of lemon plants and all of them have their own unique taste. I will ask him if one of them is Meyer or not. Thanks for sharing the information.
