Fine lemon

The most extended lemon tree varieties in Spain are, by order of importance, Verna and Fine Lemon, although american varieties such as Eureka and Lisbon still remain. Their properties and production are conditioned by the following circumstances.

Traditionally, the Fine Lemon tree has been raised in the meadow lands, being the Verna the one which has occupied the hillsides of the mountains that limit the meadows and the lands newly transformed.

During the last two years it has been noticed, in most of the productive areas, a notable increase in the cultivation of Fine lemon tree in comparison to the Verna variety, caused probably by the fact that it offers less problems, a more secure production and better prices in the market.
