I didn't find this to be too sour, less sour than a regular supermarket lemon. It tasted like part lemon and part grapefruit.

Very sour and bitter, thick rind and a lot of pulp.
Grows well in the Dominican Republic.
Used for vinegar, adding to tea/ lemonade or fermenting for liquor.
Not a good eating lemon, but this is all that is available here.
