The Ponderosa Lemon is a citrus hybrid of a lemon and a citron.
Ponderosa lemon trees are medium growing and reach a height
of 12 to 24 feet at maturity. The leaves are evergreen and lemon
scented. New growth is purple tinged, as are the flowers. It has
larger than average citrus flowers, and bears fruit throughout the
year. Pruning is required to train as a bush. It bears extra large fruit
that have a thick and bumpy rind. They look similar to a citron but,
they taste like a lemon. The fruits may be left on the tree for many
months after they've ripened without a drop in the fruits' quality.
In addition, like citron, Ponderosa lemon trees can flower and bear
fruit at the same time, further adding to the visual appeal. While the
fruit are larger than that of a normal lemon, they have the same flavor
and acidity. As such, the fruit can be used in place of true lemons.
There is enough juice for several lemon pies in just one large Ponderosa lemon, and they can replace lemons measure for
measure in recipes.
