    I could be wrong but I believe they are in season during the winter months...

      Have you ever seen any in Toronto, even in the winter? Something tells me I did, somewhere, but I may be imagining it.

        Whole Foods, Fiesta Farms, SLM when in season.

          I've seen them at Whole Foods as well in the winter months. Are you eating them? There's not really any pulp in the middle, and for recipes that require citrus rinds, there are cheaper and easier to prepare/cut-up substitutes like lemons. However, for decoration and discussion, that's a different story!

            My SO candies the rinds. I find that they have slightly different aromatics than lemons. I really like them.

                Thanks all... I'll keep my eyes open in the winter. I'm planning to pickle the rinds, but now thinking about candied peel...
