(Still) ISO Meyer Lemons

Has anyone seen Meyer lemons lately anywhere in Chester County or northern DE?

  1. If you have a Costco near you, I saw them in bulk at the Montgomeryville location

    1. The Trader Joe's in Devon had them earlier this week.

      1. Just for fun, we bought a meyer lemon plant from a local nursery about three years ago. During the summer we set it outside (we're in zome 5), and then bring it back in in the fall when frost threatens. The blossoms smell wonderful and each year we get more and more fruit. This November we picked 11 lemons from a plant that's maybe 30" tall including its pot.

          Awesome junescook and very old school. My grandmother was a child in the early part of the last century and she remembered her father's lemon tree. Her mom was annoyed by the tree taking up so much room in the kitchen in winter.

        2. I just saw them at the Fresh Market by Rts. 1 & 202 (on Route 1 in the big shopping center with Borders, Ruby's Diner, Ann Taylor Loft, etc). I think that they were about 2.99/pound.

          Good luck!

            Thanks, jennzisme! I stopped in in this afternoon and found them in plentiful supply for $2.49/lb. I bought enough that I can put up a jar of preserved lemons and make some yummy lemon bars. Then I'll go back for more.

            BTW, I also picked up a box of Sugar Belle oranges there. I'm not familiar with these, and I can't wait to try them. I think fresh, juicy citrus may well be the best thing about winter.

              I also saw them today at both Whole Foods in Wynnewood and at Carlino's in Ardmore.

          2. Trader Joe's in Gateway Shopping Center has them.

              They seem to be in plentiful supply all through the area these days. Thanks!
