About

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.

How to prepare

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).
