These two lemon varieties are the most common lemons that are grown in the states of California and Arizona. You probably won't notice the difference between the two lemon varieties and will just go for what is available. You will have both conventional lemons and organic lemon varieties to choose from. Quite often lemon varieties will be available in bags so you can save a bit of money. And like any of your produce you can shop around to find the best prices. And depending on where you live you can pick up your produce from the farmers market and meet the farmers. You may also notice Meyer lemon varieties available. You might notice that these lemons look a bit different in color, and that is because Meyer lemons are not true lemons. It believed that Meyer lemon varieties are a cross between a lemon and an orange or mandarin. When being compared to lemons, Meyer lemons have thinner and smoother skin and are rounder in shape. The color is somewhere between yellow and orange. Meyer lemon varieties are not very sweet and are less acidic than regular lemons. For this drink recipe for your entertaining menu ideas, you are best off to go with one of the other two lemon varieties rather than the Meyer lemons, which may be saved for your dessert recipe ideas. **
