No ordinary lemon, this rare citrus fruit is a little star. The size of a satsuma, intoxicatingly aromatic, sweet-sour in flavour and bursting with juice. You may recognise its exotic floral fragrance – bergamot oil is what gives Earl Grey tea its perfumed flavour.

Cooking

Squeeze over pancakes, steep in hot water for a refreshing tea, use in salad dressings or to make sweet curd, sorbet or marmalade. A little tip: roll a lemon back and forth between your hands before using, and you'll be able to squeeze more juice.

Storage

Lemons can be kept in a cool room or the fridge for at least a week.

Class

Our lemons are sold as class 2. This means that they might not look cosmetically perfect, but they are grown for the very best flavour. (We have to tell you this to satisfy some EU rules).

Grower Info

We love ProNatura. This French NGO co-ordinates production and provides support for hundreds of small-scale, organic, Fairtrade farmers in countries all over the world. The project is as ambitious as it is admirable.

We’re just as confident in ProNatura’s quality as we are in their ethical credentials. Their fresh fruit has been such a smash hit at Riverford that Guy even went out to Togo and the Dominican Republic to meet ProNatura’s growers for himself .
