Know your product

In former times, explorers highly valued this fruit sometimes called "Sun Color Fruit”. Indeed, thanks to its content of vitamin C and its easy conservation, lemon helped prevent scurvy, the disease commonly caught at sea.

Our lemons are selected according to their state of development and ripeness: standards that are adapted to their variety, the period of picking, and the zone of production. Their minimal content of juice is fixed to 20 %.

How to buy

Choose bright, firm, and very yellow lemons, with a smooth skin and a heavy weight compared to its size.

how to keep

You can keep lemons at room temperature for a week, or in the fridge for a month.

Tips

You can cut lemons in fine small strips as decoration or garnish. The dish most appreciated by lemon lovers: the lemon meringue pie.
