As yet rather unregarded, the Red Lemon is now becoming more and more popular - which is not surprising because its red fruits are very decorative! As for the breeding of this variety not only lemons were chosen but assumedly also Lemon-Citron (Citrus medica), so that its fruits are very big. ‘Rosso’ grows slighly more compact than other Lemons as e.g. ‘Lunario’ or ‘Feminello’. Its crown is well branched and densely leaved. In spring (but also in summer to late summer) 2 - 2.5 cm long petals with sweet, intensive fragrance develop from purple coloured flower buds. The fruits are rounded to oblong with a dark yellow to orange peel with red nuance. Sometimes, also the fruit pulp is reddish.
