Organic Meyer Lemons

Meyer lemons first came to the United States a century ago. The Los Angeles Times has rightly called them “furiously addictive.”

When compared to a typical lemon, the Meyer is sweeter and has a thinner peel, with a slightly floral aroma and less acidic taste. Look for the intriguing citrus fruit at your local natural and organic food store, as well as farmers’ markets.

Organic gardeners will love a Meyer Lemon Tree, which can serve as a fragrant houseplant. It ships in a terra cotta clay pot, produces lemons year round and grows to about 8–10 feet tall.

    Do you think it’s okay to bring one of those trees at home? I mean, just how large can it be? I totally love the fruit. I want one of those. :)
