Featured article | Worldwide famous lemons :.
Our lemons are famous all over the world, and are one of our most typical products, that inspired many traditional recipes, cakes, and the famous limoncello liqueur. The trees are also a vital element for the local environment. In fact their deep and strong roots stabilise the terrain of the hills and cliffs of the area. Looking after the orchards, and collecting the fruits is hard work, and unfortunately it is not very profitable anymore, since a lot has changed in both the local and world's economy in the last few decades. Therefore only the older generation still maintains the trees and harvests the fruits. Most likely when these last caretakers will go no one will take their place, and in time also the trees might disappear from this area if left without care. Please support this natural product, and help us keep this tradition alive, and the environment in balance. Please make sure you buy original lemons from the area. Thank you.
How to tell a lemon from a lemon: the local "sfusato amalfitano" is recognizable for its oval shape, its intense aroma, and its size, being generally bigger than the Sicilian lemon which also has a rounder shape.
