Fresh Variegated Pink Lemon
On the outside, these lemons are yellow in color with faint green and off-white stripes. The flesh inside is a rose-tinted pink which gets deeper as the lemon matures. Pink lemons have a very fragrant lemon scent, very few seeds, and a tangy and tart flavor. They are sweeter than common lemons and become less acidic with age. Pink Zebra lemons are high in vitamin C and are usually harvested in the summer, though in limited quantity.
