While a lemon tree can yield 500-600 pounds of fruit per year, each golden orb is cut by hand and placed in a cloth sack that is worn over the harvester’s shoulder. Think about that: each piece of fruit is specially chosen. Since lemons can be harvested up to three times per year from a single tree, there really isn’t a dedicated lemon season. However, the peak demand for lemons is now, now, now! Who hasn’t spent a hot and muggy childhood afternoon trying to hawk lemonade to neighbors? It’s time for picnics, lemonade stands, and few good recipes that draw maximum flavor from one of our favorite summer fruits. —By Mary Carter Share this: Pin ItEmailPrint Chicken Schnitzel with Lemon Chicken Drumsticks with Lemon and Garlic Grilled chicken drumsticks are marinated in garlic and lemons.
