On average, lemons weigh between 120 and 150 grams. With regard to colour, they can take on several shades, varying from bright yellow to golden yellow.

NUTRITIONAL CHARACTERISTICS
& PREPARATION

Lemons have long been respected and prized for their numerous beneficial properties.
They have been used as a remedy for headaches, to dissolve kidney stones, and even to whet the appetite.   

This fruit is also appreciated for its juicy flesh and acidity. Lemons are very low in calories.

They are bursting with vitamin C and boast a wide range of beneficial properties. Lemons have long been associated with festive occasions and appreciated by gourmets, serving as a perfect accompaniment for fish or shellfish, and an excellent flavouring agent.
