Even More Meyer Lemons!

February 12, 2010

My recent story on Meyer lemons for The Seattle Times Pacific Northwest magazine elicited lots of interesting feedback in various online posts and e-mails. Here an excerpt from an e-mail from orchardess Karen Morss, who owns an organic Meyer-lemon orchard in California.

“That was a great story on Meyer lemons! I like them so much I planted 40 trees in my backyard and started my own orchard, Lemon Ladies Orchard. I sell these beautiful organic lemons online. Meyers are sometimes hard to find–especially organic lemons. In the Seattle area, Molly Moon’s Homemade Ice Cream uses my lemons in their products.”

And, a few weeks ago, winter citrus (including a recipe for Petrale Sole with Meyer-Lemon Beurre Blanc) was the focus of Georgeanne Brennan’s article in the San Francisco Chronicle.
