All you fans of fruit in the kitchen, listen carefully! We have the absolute all-rounder for you that we can highly recommend for squeezing, baking, cooking and for beverages: our SanLucar Lemon. Its peel is no longer conserved after harvest – therefore, you can eat it with a clear conscience. Just so that you know exactly with whom you are dealing with, we have put together the most important aspects concerning our lemons for you.
Growing SanLucar Lemons
Here at SanLucar, we are only satisfied with the very best flavour – and our fruits are only grown in the best cultivation regions in the world. In the case of our lemons, it’s Spain, Argentina, Chile and South Africa. Here, they get exactly what they love the most: a uniformly warm and humid climate, lots of sun and fertile soils. With the ultimate care by our experienced growing partners, they thrive there on forever green trees, turning into refreshing delicacies with juicy-sour fruit flesh.
For our lemons to taste just as delicious as freshly picked for our customers, we have particularly strict growing guidelines. This means that we cut the ripe fruit with scissors directly at the stem base. This way, we can prevent the protruding branches from injuring the neighbouring fruit. We then place them in cushioned buckets to protect them from excessive pressure.
After our fruits are harvested, they must pass several quality controls. Carefully and rigorously, we check to see if the fruits have even colouring. We sort out fruits with peel defects right away so that they are not offered for sale.
