Lemon Ladies Orchard
Emerald Hills, California

    I love Meyer lemons. I still
    remember the very first time I
    tasted one. Pure bliss! They are so
    sweet you can eat them without
    puckering. The fragrance is  
    overwhelming. The skins are very
    thin and make for easy zesting.
    The juice is sweet and floral at
    the same time.

    These lemons are a cross between
    a mandarin orange and lemon
    and date back 3000 years. They
    were discovered in 1908 in China
    by Frank Meyers.

    In 2004, I decided to plant a
    orchard just for Meyer lemons
    and Lemon Ladies Orchard was
    born. Each tree is named for a
    woman who inspired me and
    helped me achieve my goals and
    dreams. And each lady painted a
    tile for her tree with her name. I
    think this is one of the reasons
    our lemons are so sweet!

    We use organic fertilizer, lots of
    sunshine, water and love to raise
    these beauties. Ladybugs are also
    welcome in our orchard!

    For the past three years we have
    picked the blossoms and small
    fruit so that the ladies could set
    down roots and grow strong as
    trees. 2007/8 was our first full
    harvest. Our beautiful trees
    produced over 6000 pounds of
    lemons in a season that lasted
    from September till May!

    We hope you will enjoy our
    lemons as much as we enjoy
    growing them!
