The Meyer lemon, is a citrus fruit native to China thought to be a cross between a true lemon and either a mandarin or common orange. The Meyer Lemon is a favorite of chefs and gourmets. It is slightly sweeter than the classic commercial varieties (Eureka and Lisbon). Its soft skin develops an orange hue when fruit is fully ripe, and its distinctive, mystical flavor combines lemon with a hint of tangerine. It is easy to grow, compact, and notoriously prolific in its blooming and fruiting. The tree often flowers twice a year, such that both fruit and flowers can be present all year long. What’s more, it does not need a lot of heat to ripen the fruit. Check this out The Best Damn Lemon Cake
