Beautiful Meyer lemons. This is a picture taken of some lemons from the tree in the back yard of the cottage where we lived in Berkeley up until 2015. The tree produced lemons abou 11 months out of the year. Both the flowers and the lemons themselves were incredibly fragrant. Fresh lemons are a great source of vitamin C, which helps maintain our immune system strong all winter long, as well as maintain good anti-oxidant status and support healthy connective tissue. While most people know that citrus fruit contains vitamin C, there are plenty of other foods that do as well, including guava, acerola cherry, papaya, mango, pineapple, kiwi, strawberries, rose hips, kale and other greens, as well as broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and adrenal glandular tissue. In fact, native peoples living in the Arctic circle relied on the adrenal glandular tissue from the animals they hunted as a source of vitamin C to protect themselves from scurvy.
