Meyer lemons were first introduced to the United States from China in the early 20th century by Frank Meyer, from whom they also got their name. This sweet winter citrus is thought to be a cross between a regular lemon and a mandarin orange.
Appearance – Meyer lemons are smaller and more round than regular lemons, with smoother, thin, deep yellow to orange skin, and dark yellow pulp.
Taste – Meyer lemons don’t have the same tang as regular lemons. Instead, they’re much sweeter . Their rinds also have a more complex scent than regular lemons, a spicy bergamot fragrance that tastes and smells more like an herb or a spice.
