Meyer lemons are a cross between a Eureka & Lisbon lemon variety and a Mandarin orange. Meyer lemons have smooth golden skin, the color of a fresh egg yolk Meyer lemons are rounder, smoother, and more orange in color than standard lemons. Their thin skin ranges from dark yellow to rich egg yolk, and their inner skin is a deep yellow. Additionally, Meyer lemons have barely any pith. Regular lemons are incredibly acidic and sour. The differences are very distinct, especially when you see both varieties side by side. Although still moderately acidic, Meyer lemons don’t have the same tang as regular lemons. Instead, they’re much sweeter, so much so that some people enjoy adding the raw segments to their salads or desserts.
