Artur’s Eureka lemons are also known as “sweet lemons” among our customers because they are less sour than other lemons, are very juicy and can even be enjoyed eaten raw and whole – skin included. The colour of the lemon is determined by the temperature of the atmosphere during maturity, not a sign of ripeness. The warm climate and mineral-rich land in the Algarve provides optimal conditions for citrus cultivation.
Lemons are an important source of vitamin C and antioxidants. Lemons are versatile fruits that can used with almost all types of dishes. Use them as a dressing ingredient in salads or your ginger-lemon ‘shots’, grate the lemon zest over salads and deserts, or turn your lemons into fresh and refreshing lemonade!
Storage and shelf life
Since our citrus fruits are completely natural without surface treatment, they have a shorter shelf life. When stored in 4°C – 8°C, they can last for up to 4 weeks. However their best taste is expressed at room temperature.
