In his 1899 monograph, Vincenzo Riccobono, head gardener of the Botanical Gardens in Palermo, wrote “This new variety should be grown on a large scale by all owners of citrus orchards, simply because of its abundant fruit and continual monthly flowering. Hence the common name, Lumiuni lunariu”’.
This lemon variety was known in the 19th century, and was called “Lunario”, because in its area of origin it flowers at each new moon; and also “four-seasons lemon” because it bears fruit all year round. It is a vigorous and very productive remontant plant; like the Femminello Comune, it produces both fruit and flowers all year round. The leaves are dark green and elliptical, with a pointed tip, the buds are purple and grow both singly and in clusters. The fruit is elongate, with a pronounced neck in the peduncular area and a nipple at the apex. The fruit has thin rind and slightly acidic juicy flesh with few seeds.
Unlike the Florentine lemon, this cultivar only becomes fully productive when mature.
