“There are lemon varieties,” says SanLucar Master Grower Maribel Poveda, “where the trees do anything they please. One year, they grow lots of small fruit, and the next year, much fewer, but quite large.“ At harvest, they are cut at the stalk neck so that no protruding branches injure the neighboring fruits. Then they are put in padded buckets to protect them from pressure. But they’re the most joyful for Maribel shortly before harvest – when it looks as if thousands of small yellow suns are hanging in the trees. How can you not be elated?
With their edible peel and their distinctive aroma, our lemons are always in a good mood when baking, cooking or in delicious drinks, too.
