We used to love these sweet lemons; I still remember the excitement when they would first show up and we’d get a few at home! These look like fat lemons, but have absolutely no acidity whatsoever!
We used to eat them as a snack after school.
I thought they would only be available in Lebanon or Syria and lo and behold, “my” Palestinian grocer is carrying them! I believe they are produced in California and Arizona.
What does a lemon taste like if it is not acidic? It tastes very sweet and delicate! Try it and let me know! aka Sweet Limes or Persian Limes.
