The ultimate culinary lemon? Chefs and flavor enthusiasts are getting excited over Meyer Lemons. Why? This variety is sweeter and less acidic than regular Lemons. You can even eat a Meyer Lemon wedge without completely puckering up… well, sort of… it’s still a lemon, after all. They have smooth, thin skin that is golden-yellow in color. Meyer Lemons (also called Meyer Sweet Lemons) are actually quite refreshing with tones of tangerine left on your tongue. Their zest, the shavings of the outer colored portion of skin, is almost floral.
