Can you tell the difference between a lemon and a Meyer lemon? Here’s a little info All About Meyer Lemons.  The meyers are my favorite, and while these ones happen to be the most orange I’ve ever had, they are still lovely and wonderful.

A meyer lemon is a bit more sweet and mild than a normal lemon, and oh the flavor. It’s quite perfect in my opinion.

A meyer lemon is said to be a cross between a regular lemon and possibly a mandarin or regular orange. The skin is thinner than a normal lemon and more smooth in texture. It’s also a bit more round.

Don’t let the cross with an orange deter you, these babies are definitely lemon in flavor and they are perfect in sweets, breakfast foods etc.
