The Meyer lemon is easily distinguishable from the common lemon due to its shape, outer skin color and fragrance. The shape of the Meyer lemon is ellipse, it has a deep yellow color and offers a floral sweet scent. Meyer lemons have thin and delicate peel and present a sweet and slightly tart flavor.
The Meyer lemon is available during the fall and winter months.
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.
