An update on my meyer lemon

krismast(6 S.E. PA)November 12, 2013

After my meyer lemon dropped all of its leaves last winter, and a good pruning, it has since filled back out nicely and is loaded with blooms. I have it in my sunroom and I can't wait for it to bloom! Sorry for the bad picture quality, I took them with my phone.

Speaking of citrus, yesterday I made some really good candied orange and lemon peels, to use in holiday baking. They are so delicious!

How are all the other northern citrus growers doing?

Your tree looks wonderful, Kristopher, and I love your candied citrus peel! Fabulous.

I'm also glad to see you making candied citrus peels. I brought some up to work one day and my co-workers just looked at me funny :>) They think I'm strange. Well, I guess that goes without saying but candied citrus peels really are tasty!

Great job and happy Northern Citrus Growing.....

I am ok, it's my trees that are just darn right ticked off at not being outdoors anymore...

Lol Mike, I would send you some but I just made a small batch. These will eventually be going into English Christmas puddings. My two trees haven't been too upset with me so far.

Thanks Patty, they really are good!

John, I wish I was one of your coworkers! Which method do you use to candy your peels? I've seen a lot of differing opinions on how to do it online.

There is nothing in this world better than candied Meyer lemon peel; it does not have the bitterness of other lemon peel. In the last 2 years we have sent Meyers to Berlin to the Fruit Logistica show and each time the people end up walking around sucking on Meyer lemon peels.
