Pursian Lemon


Persian Sweet lemons are medium-sized round fruit, averaging 5 centimeters in diameter, with slightly yellowish-green skin that matures to a warm yellow. The pale yellow flesh is highly fragrant with hints of rose, and houses several seeds. The taste is sweet, more like that of an orange, though within a few hours after cutting, the juice can take on a bitter flavor, similar to grapefruit juice. The thin rind contains essential oils and emits a pleasant, honeyed aroma when rubbed.


Persian Sweet lemons are high in vitamin C and offer immune-boosting benefits, making them helpful for treating the common cold. They also contain vitamin A, predominately in their rind, as well as a good amount of folate.
