Limón cuña is “lemon wedge” in Spanish. The illustration above depicts one kissed by the morning sun to the back. Subsurface scattering passes the light from the back to a brilliant red-orange in the front.
The colors for this “lemon” are a bit unorthodox, but be assured, this orange-fleshed and green-skinned citrus is sour and not meant for eating. The value of this fruit comes from its juice; it is as sour as a yellow lemon, but the floral notes due to the citrus oils are a bit sweeter and more complex than the standard yellow variety.
This one came from Ind. Paificadora El Hayal in Santa Sofia close to Villa de Leyva in Colombia.
