Did you know that pink lemons are real? This is my new baby Pink Variegated Eureka Lemon Tree,
I re-potted it into a bigger pot and added some Pennyroyal to it. I need to trim it up a bit, but here is a close up of the variegated leaves.
Here is a picture from https://plantaddicts.com/pink-variegated-eureka-lemon/ of the fruit.
I am reading from: https://www.delish.com/cooking/a43357/pink-lemons/ “They are grown as a specialty farmers’ market produce item in Southern California. They’re now snatched up by fancy restaurants and top chefs for their floral flavor, but they weren’t always prized: Pink lemons were first discovered as a mutant on a Eureka lemon tree in a California backyard around 1930.”
I am also reading from: https://www.foodnetwork.com/fn-dish/news/2020/03/what-are-pink-lemons “Also known as the “variegated pink lemon” or the “variegated Eureka lemon” due to its splotchy, colorful foliage, this unique citrus was discovered in 1930 in Burbank, California. Believe it or not, citrus growers at the time weren’t trying to cultivate pink lemons — in actuality, these lush citrus fruits were a result of a spontaneous mutation on a Eureka lemon tree.”
Really, so very neat.
