This is the most popular lemon cultivar with citrus growers, which forms the basis for Italian lemon growing due to its easy adaptability to the various growing areas and the agricultural practice of forcing (controlled periods of drought) and to its high and constant production. Depending on the harvest period, the fruit is classified as Primofiore (October–March), Bianchetto or Maiolino (spring lemon, April–June), and Verdello (summer lemon, July–September).
The plant is remontant and very vigorous, with fairly assurgent growth and few thorns. The fruit contains seeds and is characterized by average acidity and persistence on the tree when ripe. The essence of the Femminello Comune lemon is prized worldwide.
The elliptic fruit is yellow when ripe, with plenty of very fragrant juice and an average weight of 130 g.
It ripens from October to March.
The NL46-644 nucellar clone was developed and selected at the CRA-lstituto Sperimentale per l’Agrumicoltura in Acireale (CT) in 1946.
