Pink Lemons – Information and Facts

Have you ever seen a pink lemon? Wonder what it tastes like or how it is different from the typical yellow lemon? Pink lemons, also called variegated pink lemons, are unique because they have both yellow and pink flesh. They have a mild, sweet flavor compared to the tartness of a regular lemon. Read on to learn more about pink lemons.

Where do Pink Lemons Come From?

They come from the hybridization process between a lemon and a grapefruit. Not known who created this hybrid but some say it was a farmer in California in the 1930s. The parent plants must be closely monitored since there is no guarantee that their offspring will be either one or both of them. Because of this, they are often found as rare but coveted treats in farmers markets and specialty stores.

What Do Pink Lemons Taste Like?

They have an aroma similar to regular lemons – strong with notes of citrus. However, unlike their yellow counterparts, they are significantly sweeter and milder in taste due to their higher sugar content. Eaten raw or cooked into dishes for added sweetness without having to add any extra sugar.


Used for just about anything you would use ordinary lemons for – making lemonade, baking recipes such as pies and cakes, adding flavor to marinades and dressings, etc. Plus they can add a vibrant pop of color to any dish! Used as decorative elements since they look so beautiful when cut open revealing their vibrant colors. To get the most out of them while they’re in season (late spring through early autumn), make sure you buy organic ones when possible as non-organic may contain pesticides which could interfere with their flavor profile.


Pink lemon is a truly special fruits that combine the tartness of regular lemons with a much sweeter taste due to their higher sugar content. These unique fruits come from a hybridization process between two parents – one being a lemon and the other being a grapefruit – making them quite rare commodities at farmers markets and specialty stores alike.
