Italian Leafy Lemons
Our Italian Leafy Lemons from the Amalfi coast of Italy have a unique flavour and intense aroma. Usually handpicked and packed straight into distinctive crates with their leaves and flowers, without any of the washing and waxing that most lemons undergo, their skin is thick and rough, and because it is unwaxed, you can make the most of their wonderfully tasty zest.
In fact the pith is just as palatable as the juice within, meaning that along with the zest, you can truly use the whole of the fruit.
The bright lime-coloured leaves and stalks cling to the vibrant yellow skin offering a passport of freshness that enhances the fruit’s natural deliciousness.
Available almost all year round, they are the only way to make true cloudy homemade lemonade, ice cold, zingy limoncello or a sharp lemon tart, avoiding the bitterness associated with waxed citrus.
