The Meyer lemon is the most commonly grown lemon in New Zealand, for good reason, it fruits all year round and is the most cold hardy citrus. A soft fruit with high juice content, it is a cross between a lemon and mandarin.
Smaller than other lemons, Meyer lemons also have a smoother, thinner skin and darker yellow pulp. What’s special about this variety is the sweeter taste – they pack far less of a tangy punch than other lemons. Take a whiff of a Meyer lemon and compare it to any other kind – you’ll find that Meyer lemons have a unique, slightly spicy scent.
