About the product:

Sweet lemon is a general descriptor used for several varieties of sweet, subtly tangy fruits that contain low acidity. It is important to note that Sweet lemons are not true lemons but are a natural hybrid between two citrus species. The peel is thin, taut, and semi-smooth, covered in prominent sunken oil glands giving the surface a pebbled, textured feel. Underneath the peel, the flesh is divided by thin white membranes into 9 to 10 segments, and the pale-yellow flesh is tender, aqueous, and pulpy, either being found seedless or containing a few cream-colored seeds. Sweet lemons should feel heavy for their size and emit a sweet, honeyed scent when sliced or scratched. The flesh has low acidity, creating a mild, floral, sweet, and subtly tangy flavor.

Sweet lemons are available year-round. Sweet lemons are an excellent source of vitamin C to strengthen the immune system while reducing inflammation and contain other nutrients, including vitamin A, fiber, calcium, potassium, folate, and niacin. Sweet lemon juice also contains flavonoids, compounds that have antioxidant-like properties to protect the cells against the damages caused by free radicals. The lemon juice is often used in natural medicines to prevent colds and flu and is mixed with hot water and honey to reduce fevers, sore throats, and infections.
