These Naturally Pink Lemons Are Our Latest Produce Obsession

These Naturally Pink Lemons Are Our Latest Produce Obsession Few things seem more refreshing than a glass of pink lemonade on a summer day, but most mixes are chockfull of artificial colors. As it turns out, there’s a natural way to sip on a citrusy pink drink thanks to pink lemons, and you can find them at your local grocery store. Variegated Pink Eureka—often referred to as pink lemon or pink lemonade lemon—first popped up in Burbank, California, in 1931. The first fruit was a sport of a Eureka lemon tree, which means it was part of a plant, but physically different from the usual growth. The fruit gets the name from its pink flesh, which intensifies as it matures, and its variegated (different colored) green and white peel. The fruit has few seeds and a tart flavor, and you can buy this pink variety in late winter, spring, and early summer. If you live in zones 8-10, you can even grow one yourself. Amazon sells a six-inch potted tree for just $24.99.
