VARIETIES EUREKA

GENOVA

The Eureka originated as a superior seedling grown from seeds that were obtained from imported Sicilian lemons and planted by Dr. Halsey of Los Angeles in 1858.

The Genova is the leading variety of lemon from Chile. It has an ellipsoidal shape with a smooth rind and is medium in size. The rind is relatively thin and the flesh contains few seeds. The Genova lemon is more cold tolerant than the Eureka and has fewer small thorns on the fruiting branches.

The medium thick rind has a corrugated texture and is often slightly ridged. The surface may also be finely pitted with sunken oil glands. When mature, the Eureka lemon is yellow and abundant in juices.

SIZES Lemons are sized according to the approximate number of lemons that can be contained in a standard box; the number attached to the lemons corresponds to the number of fruits in the standard bushel carton. Therefore these fruits are measured by total volume rather than by total weight. The following is a table of the lemon sizes we typically carry:

GRADES In the United States of America, lemons are subject to four grade standards. The following is the ranking from highest to lowest: • U.S. No. 1 • U.S. Export No. 1 • U.S. Combination • U.S. No. 2 Lemons that we import are subject to CAT 1 quality grading standards.
