NZ LEMONADE FRUIT

So, you’ve heard of lemons, you’ve heard of lemonade, but did you know there’s an actual lemonade fruit? Chances are you’ve already tried one, although you may have assumed it was just an especially sweet lemon.

This delicious yellow orb is almost identical to a lemon, but is in fact a hybrid citrus fruit - known in botanic circles as Citrus limon. It is the pleasant result of a tryst between a mandarin and a Meyer lemon, although some debate this, claiming that it’s a cross between a grapefruit and lemon.

Like lemons, lemonade fruit are rounded or oval, with bright yellow skin. The tree itself is rather attractive, making it a popular ornamental tree. It is mini-sized in comparison to its larger citrus relatives, with pleasant smelling white flowers and dark green leaves.

What differentiates the lemonade fruit from its close cousins? It is much less acidic, making it sweeter and removing the lip-puckering sourness of a lemon. The taste is, unsurprisingly, reminiscent of lemonade. The longer you let it ripen, the sweeter it will be!
