 A sunny reminder of Italy, this is a giant citron known on the Amalfi Coast as a Sfumato lemon or a Citrus medica. This type of lemon is unique to the area it is cultivated so it bears IGP status, Indicazione Geografica Protetta. It makes us think of Italian august dinners under the lemon trees, boughs heavy with fruit and held up by the chestnut trellis, and of the delicious candied citron peel in panettone. These trompe l’oeil dishes were originally used to signify that a meal had ended. In a variety of cultures, lemons are used in the house to attract positive energy and dispel bad vibes. lemons were to ancient Rome what pineapples were to the colonists of the 17th century who rented them for the night as a sign of status and wealth to grace their tables and awe and impress visitors. Put this lemon talisman near your front door on a hall table or in your living room and bring in some good energy and sunshine.
