Very good giant lemon found in Gran Canaria. What is it?
« on: January 03, 2020, 07:19:59 AM »
Hi,

found this huge (780g/1,72p) lemon in Gran Canaria. Very thin rind, sour but not too sour, salty, very juicy. All fruits look the same, seeds do not look like lemon seeds. Vendor says the only thing special about it is that it was grafted on "wild orange".
Most giant lemons i know are just rind and no juice. This one seems a very good lemon for lemonade or lots of juice. Is it a named variety or sth new?

Pretty sure it is Ponderosa Lemon. They are somewhat common here.

It is possible but ponderosa lemon is described as hsving thick rind (a sign that it could be a lemon - citron hybrid). This fruit has incredibly thin rind.
Also, ponderosa lemon seems to be mostly an ornamental while this is a superior lemon in my oppinion.
Or are there ponderosa lemons with thin rind?
