Meyer Lemons Are In Season Now

Posted Nov 09 2009 10:00pm

Our Delicious Meyer Lemons by alasam on Flickr Meyer lemon trees are bearing fruits this season. That means we have the perfect source of vitamin C in its purest form at this time of the year when sickness is prevalent. And with just a single squeeze of this citrus, you already have more than what you need for a tall glass of lemonade.

According to Madeline Bohannon, a tropical fruit expert from Bonita Springs Tropical Fruit Club, this generous fruit may not be the best known of its kind but it deserves to be. That is because they yield 3 or 4 times as much juice as a regular lemon.

It is even better because they are in season now. They are typically harvested from November through winter. Meaning, they’re just right in time when we need an immune system boost. FYI, vitamin C is known to reduce the growth of free radicals or build up of toxic substances in the body that cause diseases ranging from flu to cancer.

In case you want to try Meyer lemon food recipes aside from the basic lemon juice or lemonade, here are a few of my healthy choices:

Meyer lemon pasta salad with asparagus, almonds and goat cheese
Meyer Lemon ‘Custard’ Island Parfait
Meyer Lemon – Ricotta Muffins
