Lemons bring out the best in other foods. Use juice in vinaigrettes and marinades, drizzled over seafood, poultry, sauteed vegetables, whole-grain side dishes and fruit or as a color-pop garnish for foods and drinks, or use zest in baked goods and desserts. Choose thinner-skinned fruit that’s heavy for its size to ensure the most flesh. Avoid any green on the skin, which means it’s under-ripe; lemons don’t ripen off the tree. Over-ripe fruit will be wrinkled, dull-colored and overly soft or hard.

A cross between the citron and bitter orange, lemons (Citrus limon) are one of the original citrus fruits. Sunny yellow in color, oval, with a textured peel and segmented inner flesh, there are two basic types of lemons: acidic and sweet. The most common acidic, or sour, varieties are Eureka, commonly called the “supermarket lemon,” and Lisbon. The sweet and smooth-skinned Meyer lemon is actually a hybrid of a lemon and mandarin orange.
