Romana Lemon or Lima dulcis

£45.00

Citrus Limon:

This is a low acid ancient lemon that you can see in some old Italian paintings.

It is catalogue number  333 in Ferrari's "Hesperides"

It is almost certainly a limetta like the Palestine Sweet Lime.

Nearly round except for it's very pointy nipple,which looks a bit like its been pushed in, the fruit is sweet but a little insipid without the acidity but the kids love the flavour.

 

A definite must have for collectors of old Citrus varieties.
