The Meyer Lemon

Meyer lemons have a richer flavor than a regular lemon. They taste a little like a tangelo but are a little more acidic. They also yield a lot more juice. If you have grown addicted to the deep flavor of Meyer lemons, as I have, and do not live in a temperate climate – Colorado girl here – then you have to enjoy this delicacy in an abbreviated season: December to March. The only place I have found Meyer lemons is at Whole Foods.


Frank N. Meyer identified these lemons in 1908, and lent them his name, obviously. It is a hybrid, likely between a lemon and an orange, perhaps a Mandarin. Their color is certainly deeper than a regular lemon. Their skin is also much thinner, making it easy to identify the juiciest of this already juicy fruit.

Champagne, Prosecco, or sparkling wine?

Do you use real Champagne for sparkling drinks?
