With their sweet flavor, Meyer lemons have quickly become a household favorite! Native to China, these citrus fruits were originally used as an ornamental tree due to their compact size. They became popular in the U.S. during the 1970’s with the rise of California cuisine. The Meyer lemon is yellow and more round than the more common Lisbon or Eureka varieties. It also has a thinner skin and is less acidic.
The Meyer lemons we grow at the ranch were the inspiration to our Organic Lemon Blueberry granola!
