Meyer lemons easily differentiate themselves from the common lemon with their shape, fragrance, color and taste. They are ovate yet rounded. Their coloring ranges from a deep brilliant yellow to golden orange. Their smooth semi-thin peel is fragrant and oily. Their flesh is low acid, aromatic, floral and sweet.
Meyer lemons are generally available year-round, however intermittent gaps can occur.
The Meyer lemon, botanically known as Citrus meyerii, is believed to be a natural hybrid of a lemon and a mandarin or a lemon and a sweet orange. The Meyer lemon was plagued by disease until 1975 when the University of California re-released the "Improved Meyer Lemon" tree. The Meyer lemon gets its flavor from its thymol content and contains limonene, a type of flavonoid that protects the immune system.
