When life gives you snow, (so. much. snow.) we make lemonade! Well, at least we can provide the lemons. For the first time, we will be offering Meyer lemons!
We wanted to surprise our customers with a final installment of our citrus season. We’ve found the best lemons we’ve ever had from a small family farm in Southern California. A Meyer lemon is a special variety, a regular lemon crossed with a mandarin. Unlike your run-of-the-mill variety, a Meyer lemon is lower in acidity than most lemons, strong in lemony aroma and taste, and boy is it beautiful! Smooth, round, and yolk yellow, this citrus has become sought after in the culinary world and with stay-at-home chefs.
We also wanted to make this a special treat as appreciation for our customers. We’re introducing our lemons at $25 (approx. 9-10lbs) per box, including FREE SHIPPING! As Meyer lemons are a premium variety of citrus, we’ve seen prices in the grocery store for $3-4 per pound.
What can you do with Meyer lemons?
These are not your everyday lemons. However, you can use Meyers for everything use you lemons for now. Whether you’re cooking savory dishes or making desserts, the unique flavor of this lemon truly shines through. We made Meyer lemonade and were blown away by how delicious it was. They’re also perfect for making cocktails (think whiskey sours & sidecars). And if you need more ideas, check out this article from the LA Times with 100 ways to use Meyer lemons.
Seeing that this is a first time for Meyer Lemons here at Tree-Ripe, we need your feedback. There are TWO seasons for Meyer Lemons: once in late winter and another during the summer. If you love our lemons, we may offer them as a part of our summer line up. Would you like to see that? Let us know below, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
And stay tuned for an update on Georgia peach season! (soon, we promise!)
