If you haven’t seen a pink lemon before, don’t worry. In southern California, they are a prized fruit, solely destined for artisanal shops and restaurants. The abundant lycopene in them (the same thing that makes grapefruits rose-colored) gives them a pink hue. Their juice is clear, but the flavor is more floral and fruitier while being less tart and harsh. If you can get your hands on one, they are perfect for desserts or light bakes such as meringue or as a pairing with rose water.

With Pink Lemons, you won’t taste as much of the citric acid in its close kin as the regular yellow lemon. Because it is easier to take, you can more easily garner the benefits such as better hypertension management and weight loss. In addition, citric acid helps prevent kidney stones, and Vitamin C can help soothe respiratory disorders such as asthma.
