With smooth or wrinkled skin, lemons are rich in essential oils. The albedo, the white membrane is spongy and rather thick. The pulp is sour and very juicy, divided into eight or ten segments. Strong and intense aroma and fragrance.
How to choose them: they should be firm and heavy with uniformly-coloured skin. If using for juices or lemonades, it is best to favour lemons with thin, smooth skin, because they are juicier.
