Orange + lemon = Meyer lemon

Introducing the Meyer lemon –  “a fruit that looks like a lemon but tastes like an orange”.

It’s native to China and has been brought to UK consumers by Tesco, who will be selling a pack of at least four for £1.85. It’s aimed at people who are cooking with fruit and also at the cocktail market.

“This fruit is a cook’s dream as it has all the zestiness of a lemon but with the sweetness of a tart orange instead of a harsh sting,” said fruit buyer Tim Battey.
