Lmao! They are the best there is, but most are very difficult to source here in the US. Most all you find here is the crappy Meyers & the regular grocery store Lisbon's & Eureka's...

Too bad it has nasty meyer in it... Now if it was a femminello hybrid I would be interested.

((Вкус кислый, сочный лимонный, но кожура больше клементиновая. Вес 70 гр., в чае получается приятный необычный вкус))
The taste is sour, juicy lemon, but the peel is more Clementine. Weight 70 gr., the tea turns out to be a pleasant unusual taste

Why would anyone even want a clementine X lemon?  The lemon ruins the clementine portion, and the clementine ruins the lemon portion.

Beautiful area, amazing story.

I've got a couple of sticks grafted of Pomona seedless lemon, top working trees.  Anyone tried that one?  I assume it's Italian with name like that.

AFAIK Pomona limetta took its name from Pomona, California. The clone is very similar (possibly the same thing) as Bergamot of tunisi or limetta romana dolce. I grew all those three but at the end i got rid of most of them. The only difference i saw, if i remember well, is the flower's colour. All of those fruits are acidless. The peel aroma is very nice, much bergamot-like. But the pulp is really insipid.
