    I love lemons, when I go an look for them I look for COLOR, LOOK, FEEL AND SMELL, the smell is very important to me, Also the weight of a lemon.. When I pick up a lemon and feel it, and give a gently squeeze I wait for that fresh lemon scent, To me that is a perfect lemon, Color , bright yellow, no green, brown, or dullness, and the firmness, as long as it is not to giving when squeezed its a good bet its going to be good, I also do the same with limes, both are my absolute favorites, and cant wait to start using some for the summer,
    I like this segment fo picking produce, Look forward to seeing other kinds of produce I may not have tried yet, A few hints, Papaya’s, coconuts, different squashes, maybe even throw in a few recipes,,, look forward to the next segment… LEMONAID ANY ONE<< |_|
