Cuban Shaddocks have thick tasty rinds.  About 1-1.25 inches thick.  They are the most prolific fruit I have grown.  Meyer lemons are good to.

Do you use the rind in any particular way ?
How about the inside of the fruit ? I find the juice not quite Lemon, more like Rough Lemon ?

It may be due to freshness, but I have a strong preference for feminello lemons I've harvested, they tend to have a tightly adherent rind, but the rind texture is superior when cooked, and there is no unpleasant astringency or bitterness, and no resin like in Meyers.

My favorite lemon for piccata.

IU did not use the rind in ay way.  I ate some to see what it taste kike.  I don't want to spend time processing rinds.  The fruit was way to sour to eat out of hand and the fruit was very difficult to separate from its rind.  I eat my NZL rinds

Which rind is more citrusy smelling and tasting, NZL or Feminello?

Very curious about this, too, since I like to eat fresh lemon rinds.
