autumn through to spring
Lemon, Villa Franca
One of our favourites. Eureka type. A small tree with thornless stems. The fruit are medium to large sized with greenish yellow, slightly rough textured thickish skin, wonderful for lemon curd. Juicy tangy acidic flesh with few if any seeds. Villa Franca fruits over a long period through the warmer months. Tends to bear at ends of branches, which may need to be pruned back from time to time to strengthen them up.
