Robbie Sigona’s Produce Tips: Meyer Lemons

Robbie Sigona’s Produce Tips: Meyer Lemons

  • Ripe Meyers will be heavy for their size
  • Ripe Meyer lemons will have a slight give and will have a bit of a dull finish
  • The skin should be smooth, yet finely graded
  • Meyers will store well at room temperature for up to two weeks, but keep longer when in plastic bags and stored in the fridge
  • Larger lemons will have thicker skin, smaller fruit and less juice, so stick to the medium and small lemons

Robbie Sigona is our produce buyer. He works with local farmers and scours the market for the very best in fresh fruits and vegetables — some you won’t find anywhere else.
