Yesterday I did eat part of our Lemon 'Meyer' Citrus limon harvest. You can get them at +Logee's Greenhouses. The two that Pieter did harvest, were together on a branch and were touching each other. They are very juicy but the skin is rather thick. Not a great citrus I guess for growing commercially. So let me show you the results. There are still some hanging on the tree. Till it starts freezing the pots are on the brick patio near the greenhouse. Once the weather changes they have to be moved inside the greenhouse.
This is how they looked after I sliced them up.
Out in the sunshine on the balcony...
They do have seeds too.
These Lemon 'Meyer' Citrus limon were quite heavy.
This photo is from August 3, still growing. If we would not have watered them, they for sure would not have been as juicy as they turned out!
Two harvested. They certainly don't look perfect and had some Citrus Mealybugs. But that's what you can call 100% organically grown and NO pesticide was used on them.
Not the quality citrus you would see at e.g. Whole Foods...
Here you can see even better how 100% organically grown looks like. Also with Pieter's fingers you can get a feel for their size. The two spots where they grew together does not look very attractive. They didn't win the beauty contest!
Read below the unbelievable story about 'No Lemon Tree!!!' where such a Lemon 'Meyer' Citrus limon got confiscated by the USDA. I just found out tonight as Zemanta did show this to the right of my blog post here... Curious, I read it and was SHOCKED! The Government taking this away from the US Citizens?! There seems to be a lot wrong with our personal freedom...
