Lemons are oval in shape and feature a yellow, texturized outer peel. Crossed between a lime and a citron, a lemon’s tart and the tangy inner flesh is encased in eight to ten segments. The two main types of sour lemons are Eureka and Lisbon.
In addition to these sour lemons, there are also some varieties that are sweet in flavor, such as the beloved Meyer Lemon. Lemons are a favorite flavoring for cooks, so be sure to pick some up to brighten up your dishes.
Find a nice variety of lemons at the farmers' market where freshness means flavor.
