Do you know which variety of lemon it was?
Heaviest Lemon picked in 2003 in Israel
I'm afraid not. We glean the internet for interesting tidbits of trivia that may interest gardeners, but sometimes the information is not as complete as we'd like.
Thanks for your interest though!
I have a feeling it was probably a Ponderosa lemon but one never knows.
My hunch would be Etrog Citron (Citrus medica var. Etrog). They can reach enormous sizes.
Sure looks like it.
($10-15 per POUND?!?! I may have to grow a few of these!
