Amalfi Coast Lemon ID
« on: November 29, 2023, 12:21:43 PM »
I bought this lemon (at a steep price :'( ) in a specialized fruit market, and they were labelled as "Amalfi Coast Lemons". They are not
the "giant" Amalfi Lemons I'm dying to find, but I'm still curious to know the exact variety. They have a big "nipple," which reminds me of Santa Therasa lemons, but those aren't from Amalfi. I've attached pictures of the fruit and one of its dried leaves to see if anyone here would know the exact name of this lemon. Trying to grow from seed!  :D


Best,
Alex

That fruit looks correct. I heard that they are not all the giant size fruits.

I will post a few green fruits and leaves for you to compare.


Do you have an Almalfi lemons tree? Where were you able to find it in the US? I haven't seen nay place in North-America that carries it. That's why
I'm planning to grow it from seeds.


Best,
Alex

Hello.
As far as I know (from the literature, not from personal experience and according to notes that I once made for myself), the Femminello Sfusato variety is used for growing PGI "Limon Costa di Amalfi" (aka: Costa d'Amalfi, Amalfitano, Amalfitana, Amalfi) and which is sometimes called Sfusato Amalfitano.

It looks like a regular Eureka lemon to me.

The Amalfi Coast and Sorrento area produces several different kinds of lemons. The one you have certainly looks like an Amalfi lemon. The gigantic Amalfi lemons are actually citrons, contain little juice and are more for show.

Here is an update of 4 seedlings from this lemon.

Amalfi#1 (which exhibits purple growth for new shoots):





Amalfi#2:





Amalfi#3:





Amalfi#5 (which I find the weirdest-looking based on the leaves):

Yes, there is the seedling from the lemon above. I have seedlings (poly) from the large sfusato amalfitano in my most recent post. Will upload some pictures of these ones as well (on the other post).
