With this season’s Spanish lemon harvest well underway, there is no time like the present to celebrate this wonderful Spanish citrus fruit.

Spain is the number one producer of lemons in Europe and second in the world. Approximately 90% of this country’s lemon production is centered in Murcia (55%) and the Valencian Community (35%), followed by Andalusia (10%); and this fruit’s roots in this Spain go back as far as the Romans.

An essential part in our Mediterranean diet and a huge range of beloved traditional recipes, Spanish lemons are indispensable, bountiful and delicious!
