Lemon Varieties

Fresh fruit that is available in both summer and winter. With our varieties, Primofiori -also called Fino- and Verna, we guarantee the supply all year round!

Fino Lemon

Fino is the most common variety in Spain. The main flowering period for this lemon tree falls between April and May, and the fruit is harvested between October and until April.

It has a spherical or oval shape with a short tip. Primofiori’s skin is smooth and thin. The pulp has a high content of juice (40% of the fruit’s weight) and very few seeds.

At the end of summer, the Fino lemon tree has a second flowering period that produces rodrejo lemons, or late lemons, which are harvested the following summer.

Verna Lemon

It is the second most abundant variety in Spain. It can have up to three flowering periods, and in areas with good weather, it can bear fruit all year round. The skin is thick, rough and irregular which encloses a tender pulp with less juice but adjusted acidity.

The first flowering period, which produces the so-called harvest fruit, takes place between March and May. These lemons are picked between February and late June.

The second flowering period falls between spring and summer. Its fruit is known as the “second” or “sanjuaneros” fruit. The third flowering period takes place between August and September. The fruit is called the rodrejo lemon, or “late lemon”, and it is picked during the summer of the following year.
