Limón Cuña

Limón Wedge

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.
