Italian Sorrento lemons, also known as Limone di Sorrento or Sorrento lemons, are a renowned variety of lemons that are grown in the region of Sorrento, located on the southwestern coast of Italy.
They are highly prized for their unique characteristics and have been granted Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) status by the European Union, which ensures their authenticity and origin.
They have a vibrant yellow peel, medium to large size, and a slightly wrinkled surface. These lemons are highly aromatic, with an intense, fragrant scent. The flavor is a delightful combination of sweet, tangy, and slightly bitter notes.
They are used in various culinary applications, including desserts, seafood dishes, salads, dressings, and marinades. Sorrento lemons are also famous for their use in the production of Limoncello, a traditional Italian lemon liqueur.
They thrive in the Mediterranean climate of the Sorrento Peninsula, just south of Naples where the fruit benefits from warm summers, mild winters, volcanic soil, abundant sunshine, and sea breezes.
The season for Sorrento lemons is from February to July, with peak harvest in May and June.
These lemons are wonderful! We know them from Panettone and Lemon Olive oil and love both of those products!
