Ponderosa Lemons are a hybrid of a lemon and citron fruit. The fruit is larger than a standard lemon and has a thick, rough textured rind that is easy to peel.

Ponderosa Lemons are often used as a substitute for a true lemon. They can be used to make juices, desserts, or as a lemon flavoring (juice and peel). Melissa's Ponderosa Lemons are also used in Asian dishes like stir fry's and various vegetable dishes.

These lemons have a very juicy flesh and are extremely acidic which is perfect when making fresh seafood ceviche. Ponderosa Lemons are also recognizable because of their large size.

Melissa's Ponderosa Lemons are hand selected for excellent quality. Their skin should be bright yellow and they should be about grapefruit size. Choose firm lemons that are heavy for their size. Refrigerate in a plastic bag for up to 10 days or when the fruit begins to soften.

The following prohibit the shipment of any citrus into their state: Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, and Hawaii.

This item is perishable and must ship at least 2nd day.
