The Eureka Lemon is the most common supermarket variety, and is popular throughout the United States. Eureka Lemons are ideal for marinating fish, making marmalades and squeezing into lemonade. Their chemical properties are also quite powerful - literally - and able to act as a battery for small electronics.
Lisbon Lemons produce good-quality fruit with high juice content and acidity. The trees are typically low-maintenance and easy to grow, and produce plentiful crops for lemonade, baking, salad dressing and sharing with neighbors.
A cross between a Lemon and an Orange or Mandarin, the Meyer Lemon produces thin-skinned, slightly less acidic fruit than its “cousins.” Meyer Lemons are not widely grown, but make an excellent household source for culinary creations.
Widely popular in the Mediterranean regions, the Sweet Lemon is non-acidic, quite large and has unusual white seeds. The Sweet Lemon is grown ornamentally as much as it is for its fruit, which is desirable for its intense sweetness, high levels of Vitamin C, and thick, easy-to-peel rind.
A captivating variety, the Variegated Pink Lemon eminates beauty as a tree and through its fruit. It has apple green leaves with creamy white to pale yellow edges, and the skin of its green-streaked fruit matures to pale yellow on ripening. The Variegated Pink Lemon fruit’s pink flesh produces clear juice, and the tree requires at least 4 hours of sun each day.
