Imagine the lemonade stands of yesteryear, tended by freckle-faced boys and girls in pigtails. The little table at the end of the driveway was covered in a striped cloth and the glass pitchers were filled to the top with ice and sweet-tart yellow lemonade. On the table was a bowl of lemons ready to be squeezed into the next great batch for sale. The lemons in that bowl? Villafranca.
The long-time most-widely-grown lemons in Florida (until replaced by Bearss), Villafranca has generations of history behind it, so we know that it will perform well in your garden.
Villafranca trees are large – they used to be the main grove trees in Florida, covering hundreds of acres at a time – and bushy, with deep colored evergreen leaves. (They can be a bit thorny, so be careful when picking.) They are everbearing, meaning that once they are established and happy they will produce delicious lemons for you all year (heavier in the summer)!
