The lemon of Sorrento

I confirm. It is really the best lemon in Italy for its degree of acidity and its unmistakable scent.

But what is so special about these lemons? Are they really so unique?

My answer is YES. In large characters.

The peculiarity of the Sorrento lemon has been recognized since Roman times, where the product was already botanically separated from the Amalfi lemon. In fact, the Sorrento lemon enjoys PGI recognition (protected geographical indication).

The peel is perhaps the real fortune of this variety of lemons, since it is very rich in essential oils, a peculiarity that makes the lemon trees grown with this variety particularly fragrant. The real secret of Sorrento lemon is in its scent.
