OK, I've decided to start a Italian lemon collection.

Anyone have any decent Italian lemon varieties they would like to trade budsticks?

I'd love to, as I am sure most of us in the quarantine zone would.

But, well, you understand.

As far as I can tell, that Sfusato Amalfitano is not the "limone pane" that is referenced in the cedro salad post... That huge limone pane seems to be Limone di Procida. The Sfusato Amalfitano is what replaced it commercially, I believe, and it's a "femminello", which I assume means smaller in a male chauvinistic world (unless it refers to a smoother skin)... The search continues...
https://vivaifrappetta.it/prodotto/limone-di-procida/

Edit:
I think this shows how confusing the naming is. Here's Amalfi Bread Lemon: https://www.oscartintori.it/en/prodotto/amalfi-bread-lemon/ and here's Amalfi Lemon (a much more std lemon): https://www.oscartintori.it/en/prodotto/amalfi-lemon/. Plus for good measure a Femminello Amalfi Lemon (seedless): https://www.oscartintori.it/en/prodotto/adamo-femminello-lemon-seedless-vcr-103/. I still can't tell from that description whether the Amalfi Bread Lemon is really the huge fruit... The description of the Roman Citron https://www.oscartintori.it/en/prodotto/roman-citron/ seems much closer to what the recipes mention.
Ok, next search is for "howto smuggle lemons into CA"  :o

Haha, I edited my post at the same time as you posted  8) Addictive search! But yeah, "it's a mess"...

Edit: looks like the Corsican Citron is the closest match in the UCR Citrus Variety Collection...

Laaz, I'm curious, what are you going to do with so many lemon trees?  You will have so many more fruits then you could possibly ever use, or perhaps could ever give away.,

I use lemons on pretty much everything. And here fresh seafood is pretty much the norm as well.

During the winter- early spring one can buy here these big bumpy lemons from Amalfi region, exceptionally good, moderately soar with sweet albedo.

No, on the price tag it was marked just Italian organic lemons. As you see  on the box it is written that they were packed  in the town of Battipaglia not far from Amalfi coast.
Look like Sfusato Amalfitano lemons.

This place has Monachello but doesn't ship & only 15 gal... They must be available in CA.
