Meyer is a smaller growing bushy tree, that produces numerous crops of medium sized lemons throughout the year. The fruit has a softer skin, turning a deep golden colour when fully ripe, containing an abundance of juice that is slightly sweeter, and containing less acid than other lemons. A great variety for use in cooking.
