Agritopia Ponderosa Lemons

The Farm at Agritopia had a number of great produce options on display at the Gilbert Farmer's Market, but we were pretty entranced by their Ponderosa Lemons. These lemons are roughly the size of a softball, and have a slightly bumpy surface. We were informed that this particular strain of citrus is a natural hybrid between a grapefruit and table (or Lisbon) lemon. The fruit is large, but identical in flavor and texture to a normal lemon, which makes it a great option for recipes that call for a lot of zest or juice.
