Persian Basket

Be the first to review this product

Persian Basket is proud to offer Persian Sweet lemons known as "limu shirin" in Iran. This fruit is very popular in markets and homes in Iran due to its high vitamin C content and surprisingly sweet flavor despite extremely high Vitamin C content! From the outside, the Persian Sweet lemon looks like a Meyer lemon: the fat, round citrus fruit has slightly yellowish-green skin that gives way to a warm yellow glow at maturity. Within, however, the greenish flesh exudes the aroma of roses and the taste is sweet with a flavor more like that of an orange. The rind is very thin, and when rubbed the oils emit a sweet smell. Persian Sweet lemons have several seeds. Within a short period after cutting or biting into the flesh, the juice can take on a bitter flavor, similar to grapefruit juice.

**Minimum purchase quantity is four lemons**

**This perishable fruit will be mailed in a Styrofoam box containing blue ice to assure safe shipping and arrival of the product**

Availability: In stock
