There are lemons and there are LEMONS!

Actually, not lemons in this case, but citrons – a fruit largely appreciated for its peel, which is candied or used as a “spoon sweet” in the Mediterranean.

We found our citrons today on a tree in the garden of Woodland Villa near the village of Choroepiskopi in the central north of the island. The trees thrive in a frost-free climate, but they are not a common sight in Corfu. The ordinary-sized lemon came from the supermarket!
