Lemons are an extraordinary little fruit. They may have originated in Asia, but now grow in many other regions around the world, including California. There is something quite astonishing to see the bright yellow fruit hanging from a branch, and know that this sour little fruit that we use in so many dishes can actually kill plants with the level of acidity it contains. There are actually many varieties of lemons, but the Eureka is the one most common in the market. Limoncello, a bright yellow Italian drink usually is made with the Sorrento lemon. Another pseudo-lemon, the Meyer lemon, is a more delicate fruit, and thought to be a cross between a mandarin orange and a lemon. Its sweeter flavor and orange tones reflect that heritage. When you make a lemon cake recipe or other lemon recipe, consider using a Meyer lemon where you want a more complex flavor result. They are fabulous.
